Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

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.

Intended learning outcomes *

In the course the students shall in teams of 4-5 persons conduct a design project. The aims for the students are to:

  • apply knowledge acquired in previous courses into concrete praxis;
  • be able to use the CAD tools in detail;
  • conduct a project in a systematic way from requirements definition to design and verification;
  • relate own project to current research
