Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is based on a project where a mechanical system or product should be designed or redesigned. The design solution is delivered as a CAD model and described in a technical report. The design is verified using relevant calculations and if applicable with physical models.

Intended learning outcomes

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

  • Plan a design project for development of a mechanical product.
  • Develop a detailed specification for the mechanical product.
  • Independently and methodologically carry out a design process to generate a new product.
  • Apply and deepen previous knowledge, as well as independently acquire new knowledge that is needed to implement the project.
  • Critically reflect on the methods chosen in the design process.
  • Evaluate the final result and compare them with alternative solution proposals and existing solutions.
