    Default Semester projects from foreign students

    I came out of retirement to teach a class of foreign students from India. Most had no machining experience at all and the photo shows the results of a short semesters (about 10 2 hour labs)work. They produced a stub mandrel and 3" aluminum pulley. All 29 were able to complete their parts which is unusual at a school.

    Did each student complete an assembly or did they work as teams on different parts of the project?

    What was the class focus?

    Each student turned a mandrel and heavy duty washer from mild steel.
    The mandrel was then used to hold the pulley for the grooving operation. And while all of the students are from different parts of India, all will be making Canada their permanent home. So not so much sending jobs overseas as improving the abilities of people that may end up doing technical work in Canada.
