Implementation of “Research Works Based Learning” to the Manufacturing with Material Removal’s Teaching Process
Project Based Learning techniques have given rise to other learning techniques as Research Works Based Learning (RWBL). This technique is especially interested in the teching-learning process of Materials Processing Technologies related disciplines. This work reports on the results of the application of RWBL techniques in a subject of the Cadiz University’s Master in Manufacturing Engineering: Engineering of Non-Conventional Materials Removing Processes. Proposed research works have been designed on the basis of a classic research paper structure: Introduction, State of the Art, Experimental Procedure, Results, Discussion and Conclusions. These proposed works were focused on a comparative analysis of different machining processes, mainly, electro-discharge machining, abrasive waterjet machining and high speed machining. This experience can be considered highly successful because the 100% of the students reached the learning objectives of the subject.
