Design Exercises 1 (MB 332, 4 ECTS) !!!not graded!!!

Course description:
Design Exercise 1 is a one semester course for practising the contents and knowledge from former courses like Machine Parts 1, Technical Mechanics. The students apply their theoretical knowledge acquired in previous courses to an actual complex task. In this context, they have to consider design guidelines and the design and layout requirements set in DIN and CE standards. In order to fulfil their tasks, they have to form teams and determine a time plan they have to comply with during the course of the project.
After having successfully completed the course, the students should
• be able to design a aimple part in consideration of load, stress and fatigue,
•have improved their capability to work in a team,
•have learned to defined benchmarks (milestones) for an effective time management.

There are no marks given for the Design Exercise 1. The course is valued either „passed“ or „failed“.
Teaching methods: Project-oriented course supported by Power Point slides, CAD-Program, Video, internet, blackboard notes, transparencies and E-learning.

Course description:
The Design Exercise 2 is a one semester course for practising the contents and knowledge from former courses like Mechanics, Design Methods and Engineering Design in a small project. The objective is to develop and design a new product. The students work on this project in a team of usually 4 students. After planning the project the team has to compile a list of requirements. Then, various product concepts have to be developped. Based on the best solution the students calculate and design the product using a CAD-software. Finally, all results of the project have to be summarized in a report. During the semester the team has to present the results in 3 milestone meetings using a 20 minute Powerpoint-presentation (english language). This is followed by a 20 minute discussion together with the instructor (professor). It is obligatory to participate in the milestone meetings for all team members. There are no marks given for the Design Exercise 2. The course is valued either „passed“ or „failed“.
