  • Show an ability to independently and creatively identify, formulate and deal with questions and analyze and evaluate the function for vehicle components´and systems´.
  • Show the ability to orally and in writing show and discuss information, problems and solutions.

Judgement and approach
  • Show insight in different vehicle technologies and be able to discuss their possibilities and limitations.
  • Show an ability to identify their need for more knowledge and continuing to develop their competence in vehicle technology.

  • Analysis of vehicle components and system such as engine, drivetrain and brakes.
  • Function of systems for wheel suspension, bearings, and wheels.
  • Function of steering and power steering systems.
  • Hydraulics and pneumatics
  • Basic levels of tribology, lubrication and bearings.

Lectures and laboratory exercises.
