Production and Design Technology / CAD

Module name (EN):
Name of module in study programme. It should be precise and clear.
Production and Design Technology / CAD
Degree programme:
Study Programme with validity of corresponding study regulations containing this module.
Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2007
Module code: WIBAS-320
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.
6V+1U+1PA (8 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: 3
Mandatory course: yes
Language of instruction:
Exercises, project, written exam

Applicability / Curricular relevance:
All study programs (with year of the version of study regulations) containing the course.

WIBAS-320 (P450-0038) Industrial Engineering, Bachelor, ASPO 01.10.2007 , semester 3, 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).
120 class hours (= 90 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 300 hours (equivalent to 10 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 210 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.
Recommended prerequisites (modules):
Recommended as prerequisite for:
WIBAS-450/550-M2e Machine tools

Learning outcomes:
Production technology:
After successfully completing this module, students will be familiar with the most important manufacturing processes of DIN 8580, in particular their technological features (e.g. operating principles, process parameters, tool systems) and areas of application (process limits, materials, economic efficiency).
Design Technology / CAD:
Students will be familiar with design methodology and technology, be able to read technical drawings and be familiar with the properties and applications of important machine elements as well as the calculation of specific machine elements.
They will be able to operate the basic features of a CAD system (AutoCAD) and use it for design work.
