Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

The main part in the course consist of a project task aiming at the design of a new or the improvement of an existing product.

Aspects such as form, function and manufacturing should be observed. The proposals should then be illustrated with physical and virtual models (e g cardboard and 3D CAD models).

then be illustrated with physical and virtual models (e g cardboard and 3D CAD).

In addition to supervision the project work is also supported through lectures, exercises and laboratory sessions.

The aim of these teacher-supervised classes is also to widen the context and perspective on design and product realisation. In the teacher-supervised classes, CAD, design, product realisation and oral and written communication are introduced,

Intended learning outcomes *

After passing the course, the student should be able to:

- the working methodology around the product realisation process and be familiar with the engineer's role in this

- understand the importance of industrial design in the product development and working methods for design, visualisation and production of models

- use some of the engineer's computer tools especially:

CAD programmes to make models in two and three dimensions for communication and as manufacturing specification

word processing software to write reports

- work in a project group with formal project meetings and assignment of tasks

- be able to plan and carry out oral presentations
