Course Aim
The aim of the course is to prepare the student for the engineering role, which implies that the student should have acquired abilities to:

  • Plan, collect and analyze data in order to identify customer needs, as a basis of sustainable development of new or existing products or services.
  • Use and evaluate methods, tools and theories relevant for the course.
  • Argue for choices made during the work, and reflect upon consequences based on these choices.
  • Analyze and evaluate the work of other students.

Contents
The course includes theory and practice related to customer focused product development.

Realization
The teaching consists of lectures, seminars, of individual assignments and group assignments. Presentations are made by the students both orally and in writing. Attendance at compulsory sessions may be required. The course is project based, where students analyse and give recommendations on product improvements.

Examination
The course aims are examined via individual assignments, oral presentations, written reports and student attendance at compulsory sessions. To pass, the student must demonstrate that the course aims have been achieved. The grade may be affected by how compulsory tasks are conducted and presented.

Remarks
Students must register for the courses themselves, or contact ETS educational administration eduets@ltu.se, not later than three days after the quarter commences. Failure to do so can result in the place being lost. This rule also applies to students with a guaranteed place.
