Summary

Students will be exposed to hands-on design problems throughout the term. They will acquire methodologies to (1) address open ended engineering problems, (2) cultivate creativity, (3) support decision making and (4) develop problem solving abilities.

Content

This project based course addresses students interested in mechanical design. Students will work in groups on a particular design problem throughout the course. Starting from customer specifications the groups will have to understand the problem at hand, perform functional decomposition, generate solutions, select basic concepts while justifying their decision, mathematically model, pre-design and then design the concept to fulfill the customer specifications. At the end of the term the students will present their concept to the class and to potential customers.

The practical work of this course will be continuously accompanied by theoretical aspects and by insights into the design process. Appropriate methodologies and tools will be presented as a function of the project progress and requirements.
