The aim of this paper is to share the authors' experience in managing the delivery of the course, Manufacturing Processes, in the Bachelor of Engineering (Mechanical), Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics), Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Mechanical) and Associate Degree (Mechanical) programs offered by the University of Southern Queensland (USQ), a regional Australian University excellence in developing e-learning (Good University Guides, 2000). USQ is also a regional university with campuses in Toowoomba, Fraser Coast and Springfield, Queensland. The paper starts with defining the contents of the course. The mode of delivery as well as the on-going modifications to the contents of the course is mentioned. A comparative study on e-learning against traditional learning was also deeply discussed with particular reference to Manufacturing Processes.
