Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The students can in the beginning of the course vote for the projects that they would like to participate in the most. Then the teachers will try to match the students into the projects that they most wanted where each project is between 3-10 students, depending on project. The proposed project come from either industrial partners or from research projects at KTH where there is a clear need to analyse a problem or develop technology.

In the first part of the project course in vehicle dynamics, SD2229, the student will usually do the following steps:

  • Benchmarking and related technology search
  • Brainstorming and idea generation
  • Product definition and analysis

This can however change between what type of project that the student chooses.  

Intended learning outcomes

After the course the student should be able to:

  1. Apply knowledge and theory from past courses, literature review and benchmarking to real life engineering projects
  2. Collaborate in a team to plan the work and jointly solve realistic engineering problems
  3. Present technical content orally.
  4. Write structured scientific and technical reports

This with the purpose of giving the students experience of working in development teams much and prepare the students for the future.
