Design Exercise 1 is a one semester course designed to put in practise contents and knowledge from former courses like Machine Parts 1 and Technical Mechanics. 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 fulfill 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 simple part in consideration of load, stress and fatigue,
•have improved their capability to work in a team,
•have learned to define 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.

Then, various product concepts have to be developed. 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 (in English). 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.
