Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The course is based on analysis and design of commonly used components in technical products.

In parallel with the dimensioning module, a project will be carried out that aim to exercise engineering problem-solving regarding design and product realization, engineering design and choice of technical solutions. The project also includes visualisation by means of sketches, computer models and physical models.

Intended learning outcomes *

On completion of the course, the student should:

• understand the function of and be able to dimension some common machine elements.

• be able to choose appropriate standard components and common engineering materials.

• be able to cooperate around technical problem-solving in an engineering way.

• be able to use 3D CAD and model parts and assemblies

• be able to account for the most common activities in the product development process and apply these from idea to concept

• be able to present results of implemented project assignments orally and in written form.

Course Disposition

The course discusses some common machine elements and design aspects through lectures and laboratory exercises. Furthermore, this is trained in a project assignment, where a new product is developed or an existing product is modified.
