Learning outcomes:
In this module, students will learn to evaluate the design phase of the development of an electrotechnical product, taking into account the mechanical and electrical regulations. After successfully completing this course, students will be able to read technical drawings. - They will be able to design and display simple mechanical constructions with corresponding elements using 3D-CAD tools. - They will be able to estimate which joining techniques are suitable depending on the material and application. - Students will be able to read electrical circuit diagrams and be familiar with the most important professional standards in the field of electrical installation. - They will have designed a partial aspect of a more complex product in their own project at the system integration level and documented it by means of technical drawings and/or electrical circuit diagrams.
