60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 120 hours (equivalent to 4 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 75 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

After successfully completing this module, students will be able to solve a specific design problem using a systematic, method-supported approach.
Course component "CAD":
After successfully completing this part of the module, students will:
- be able to use the basic functions of a modern 3-D CAD system, as well as apply the basic methodical procedures for creating a 3-D model.
Students will be able to generate sketches, model simple components and derive drawings (2-D) from them, as well as create assemblies.
Course component "Design Methodology":
After successfully completing a project in this course, students will be able to:
- design the development process of a vehicle-specific component and in doing so,
- systematically work out, analyze and evaluate solutions for individual sub-functions within an overall system and find the technically and economically optimal solution.
- apply development methods (functional structure, morphological box, variant reduction, evaluation) when designing a new component/system.
Within the framework of a final interdisciplinary project (FT04.2, FT04.3, FT04.4 and FT04.5), the students must design a small component in a team after determining loads, then dimension it in accordance with the loads and stresses and produce a production drawing in accordance with the standards. In this way, students will become familiar with the interaction of sub-disciplines and important interfaces and be able to practice running through the sequence of development steps, which they can then, in subsequent projects, independently transfer to other components.
Course component "CAD":
1. Introduction to the CATIA user interface
2. Creating sketch geometries (Skecher) using condition definitions and dimensions
3. Creating and editing simple parametric components (part design)
4. Post-processing components by edge rounding, chamfering, extraction bevels, threads,...
5. Defining and using work planes, work axes, work points
6. Generating assemblies (Assembly Design) with the help of 3-D conditions and dependencies
7. Deriving 2-D drawings (drafting) from 3-D models and their dimensioning
