Content and learning outcomes

  • Give an oral presentation of the performed work as well as opposing on other peoples work in front of a larger auditorium
  • Formulate a mechatronic design or analysis problem of limited complexity and  search for solutions by the use of modelling, simulation and computer based tools;
  • Develop/design/select a component or subsystem and verify the characteristics of the solution by using e.g. simulation;
