Engineering Design (with Project)

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Engineering Design (with Project)
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Mechanical and Process Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019
Module code: MAB_19_M_4.04.MK2
The exam administration creates a SAP-Submodule-No for every exam type in every module. The SAP-Submodule-No is equal for the same module in different study programs.
Hours per semester week / Teaching method:
The count of hours per week is a combination of lecture (V for German Vorlesung), exercise (U for Übung), practice (P) oder project (PA). For example a course of the form 2V+2U has 2 hours of lecture and 2 hours of exercise per week.
1SU+3PA (4 hours per week)
ECTS credits:
European Credit Transfer System. Points for successful completion of a course. Each ECTS point represents a workload of 30 hours.
Semester: 4
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Presentation of project results (the working machine) at an "exhibition".
Presentation explaining the project results in terms of constructional details.

MAB_19_M_4.04.MK2 (P241-0259) Mechanical and Process Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2019 , semester 4, mandatory course
Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 150 hours (equivalent to 5 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 105 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be familiar with common rules for designing components, assemblies and machines.
They will be able to construct a machine for a given task in a methodically planned procedure and assemble it in a functional manner.
SoK Students will be able to cooperate and communicate with other students in a team, and both present and defend their ideas. They will be able to discuss and evaluate the ideas of others objectively.

[updated 05.11.2020]
Module content:
A methodical approach to design _ From main functional components to standard parts
Force flow-oriented and material-economical design
Assembly-ready design
Component design for additive, generative manufacturing processes
"X-Würfel" project: Machine design and construction in a team according to a defined task The task will be announced in an annual guideline with specification sheet.
The components designed within the framework of the project must also be suitable for production (see the "Fertigungsgerechte Bauteilgestaltung" module).
