Content and learning outcomes
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

Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- INL2 - Hand in Tasks, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
- PRO2 - Project, 4.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
