Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

A number of problems concerning material processes and production methods are presented. The various problems cover a chain in which both manufacture and design are discussed.

Each student chooses a problem to be solved. Those with the same choice of problem form a working group. For each problem a supervisor is appointed. The working group in consultation with the supervisor makes up a project plan. The plan delineates the problem and puts limits on the size of the work. An analysis of the problem is implemented through literature studies, industrial visits, discussions with the supervisor and by own experiments. The project concludes with a written and oral presentation before the supervisor and examiner, and the result of the project work is presented at a seminar with an opponent.

Intended learning outcomes

The aim of this course is to give students practice in

  • making a process and production analysis of a production chain from design to finished product
  • independently formulating and solving problems within the different subject areas in project work form
  • presentation technique and writing reports
