Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course deals with an applied subject, where previously acquired knowledge should be applied and integrated with certain new given theory. The course content can be divided into three main parts:

1. Systems design of products containing:

  • Drive units
  • Transmissions
  • Joints

2. Design structures

  • Load carrying structures, load application
  • Load lines, stress concentrations
  • Choice of material
  • Manufacturing adaptation

3. Documentation and communication

  • Drawings
  • Dimensioning, tolerancing

Intended learning outcomes

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

  • Design and detail mechanical engineering products based on engineering considerations.
  • Estimate loads for mechanical engineering products and its included components.
  • Apply different design principles of load bearing and load transferring structures.
  • Choose engineering materials and standardised components in mechanical engineering products.
  • Produce dimensioned and toleranced manufacturing drawings of mechanical engineering products.
