Course Aim
The student shall accomplish an integrated project within the field of mechanical design and manufacturing. After finishing the course, the student should:

Knowledge and understanding
  • Show the knowledge and understanding necessary to participate in different parts of a project; Idéa, design, manufacturing and testing.
  • Show knowledge in how to create machine drawings with the help of CAD software
Show ability to:
  • Plan and perform qualified assignments within the project
  • Identify the need for further knowledge and continue to develop the knowledge and understanding.
  • Perform simple dimensioning calculations
  • Plan and perform manufacturing of machine components 
  • Reflect on sustainability aspects (gender equality included) during the development of mechanical engineering systems.
  • In a national context orally and in writing show the conclusions in form of a technical report of high quality and oral presentations.
Judgement and approach
  • Show an understanding of and capacity for teamwork and collaboration in teams with different compositions.
  • Show the ability to evaluate the sustainability aspects (gender equality included) that need to be considered when developing mechanical engineering systems.

The work in the course is as student groups that work to develop and produce a product. Work includes all stages from conceptual idea to manufacturing. The work is presented in a technical report.

The coursework primarily consists of project work involving “hands-on” use of a workshop with milling machines, etc. A small number of lectures may also be given. CAD-tools are utilized for the production of manufacturing drawings.

To pass the student must have and approved technical report and assignment that is written and produced in groups. In addition, attendance at two project presentations is necessary and an individual assignment has to be handed in and approved.

This course cannot be included in degree with MTM061, T0022T
