Complex embedded systems and products use microelectronics and software as integrated part of the mechanical design. Apart from function and performance, the design is of most importance for an innovative product for success on a global market. The Mechatronics advance course focus on the early part of product development; conceive, design and realization phases.

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

he course is aligned with real product development project. Design methodology topics include structured methodology and design knowledge.

Team formation and team work is an integrated part of the problem based learning environment.

The students are introduced to the tools, methods and thinking strategies needed to form and manage creative design engineering projects.

The student teams work in collaboration with industry with real problems to determine the specific factors that govern product requirements, design and realization. They focus on product-needs, design requirements, performance requirements and test-validation protocols.

The student teams produce detailed reports and supporting working physical prototypes.

Intended learning outcomes

Complex embedded mechatronic systems and products use microelectronics and software as an integrated part of the mechanical design. Apart from function and performance, the design is of most importance for an innovative product for success on a global market. The Mechatronics advance course focus on the early part of product development; conceive, design and realization phases.

The student should after the course:

- be able to show deep knowledge about the principles of mechatronics systems architecture and functions

- be able to compare and critically assess aspects on engineering problems that possibly needs a complex mechatronic product as part of the solution

- be able to define models and exercise computer simulations in the area of mechatronics, even for ill defined problems

- apply knowledge and skills in the development of mechatronic systems in an international team environment.

- be able to communicate and defend mechatronic design solutions in both oral and written dialogs

- be able to describe and be familiar with local and global companies with importants for the Mechatronic sector.

Ethical approach

  • 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.
