The course is divided into four parts, aligning the intended learning outcomes with the activities and the examination in each of the parts.
Part 1: Introduction to Mechanical Engineering: Gives an overview of the mechanical engineering field. Learning activities are primarily lectures and literature studies throughout the course. Topics include basic mechanical engineering systems and components and basic concepts and relations in mechanics, solid mechanics, machine elements, flow, energy engineering and production engineering.
Examination is a written exam.
Part 2: Introductory CAD: In this course module, students learn how to use a CAD system to document and present a design in the form of drawings, three-dimensional models, and animations. The course module activities and examination consist of compulsory computer exercises and a homework assignment.
Part 3: Sustainable development: Sustainable development is introduced holistically in a way that is adapted for engineering students. The module includes basic knowledge of the field, and an opportunity to reflect upon and discuss sustainability issues that are central for engineers.
Part 4: Study techniques, project methodology and the engineering role: Introduction to engineering programme study techniques and to the professional engineering role. Knowledge and abilities in gender equality, diversity and equality. Group dynamics, cooperation, creativity and imagination. Oral and written presentation. Examination consists of oral and written presentations, and compulsory attendance at seminars. Course module link all course's intended learning outcomes and other modules by for example oral and written request is carried out on contents related to intended learning outcomes in other parts above.
