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
