Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Short problems related to materials processing in production. The problems include manufacturing as well as construction.

Each student chooses a problem. A supervisor is elected for every problem. The student makes a project plan in cooperation with the supervisor. The problem is analyzed through literature, visits to industry, discussions with the supervisor and through experimental work. The different parts of the problem are presented and discussed in workshops. The work is concluded with a written report and is presented at a seminar.

Intended learning outcomes

To give training in

  • process- and production analysis in a manufacturing line, starting with design and ending up with a final product
  • oral presentation and writing of reports.
