MF104X Degree Project in Design and Vehicle Engineering, First Cycle 15.0 credits

In the course aims at training your skills in model-based engineering analysis and reasoning of technical products and it builds on previously acquired knowledge in areas such as mechanics, solid mechanics, and product realization. In the course, you apply self-learning approaches to gain new knowledge and integrate it with previously acquired knowledge, with the purpose to strengthen your ability to identify and solve problems within the field of machine design.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Exercises and laborations are performed by groups of 2 - 3 students.The project assignment is performed by a group of 2 - 3 students. Literature survey. Written thesis with an oral presentation. Written and oral opposition.

Intended learning outcomes

After finished thesis work the student shall be able to:

  • identify and formulate engineering design problems and search for solutions with the aid from model-based methods and modern computer tools;
  • reflect on which models that are most suitable to use in different phases of an industrial project;
  • shape and dimension a system component and then verify the properties of the system;
  • apply, value and integrate obtained knowledge and abilities on problems in the chosen domain of specialization;
  • independently deepen the personal engineering knowledge in the subject area;
  • present the work in a written thesis and as an oral presentation.
