The course is synchronized closely with the Design Project II course, which focuses on design and research methodology and oral and verbal communication skills.
Courses Design Project I and II can only be taken together.
The design projects will be offered, defined and supervised by staff members at ECS department and are expected to be related to research activities and other courses given in the program. Thus, the course coordinators are responsible for the overall course and its operation but not for providing and supervising the design projects.
In the course the students shall in teams of 4-5 persons conduct a design project. The aims for the students are:
- To put the knowledge acquired in previous courses into concrete praxis;
- Learn to use the complicated CAD tools in more detail;
- Conduct a project in a systematic way from requirements definition to design and verification;
- To be introduced to a research group as preparation for the master thesis.
