Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

This course addresses the engineering design process by integrating the skills previously acquired on machine components, put them in an engineering design context, and methodically applies them in an engineering design project.

Intended learning outcomes *

After completing the course, students will:

  • be able to describe the activities of the engineering design process and how they depend on each other
  • have completed a team-based engineering design project
  • be able to switch between different levels of abstraction, such as a function, solution in principle and detailed solution, during the different stages of the design process
  • have conducted a simplified life cycle analysis to evaluate a product's environmental impact

Course Disposition

The emphasis in this course is not on studying a list of topics, but rather it is a project course. Students work in teams on a project, integrating skills acquired in earlier courses. The course is mainly an extension of the courses MF1044 Machine Components and MG1026 Manufacturing Technology, but also requires basic knowledge in mechanics, solid mechanics, programming mathematical modes of physical system, and Computer Aided Design (CAD).

Some topics covered in the lectures include planning and managing engineering design projects, working in teams, basic design principles in mechanical engineering, materials selection and life cycle assessment (LCA). Depending upon the project, other topics may be included. Oral and written reports are required.

Literature and preparations

Specific prerequisites *

In order to be eligible to read the course, the student must have passed at least one of the examination parts in the course MF1044 Machine Components.
