Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels
Students gain a deeper understanding of the methodology applied in the development of mechatronic products by working on a practical task (project). In teams, they demonstrate their ability to work independently and to focus on the project goals.
(1) They apply the methodology for developing mechatronic products they learnt in the previous semester and work independently in project teams. M, SO K3
(2) They can develop and rate project concepts from the initial idea to the final design and visualise their results with the help of drawings, simulations and CAD models. F, M K5
(3) They are able to form and organise an effective project group, to work independently as a team on an assignment and to give appropriate feedback. M, SO K3 (K6)
(4) They are able to conduct research, to summarise the most important findings and to pass these on to the project group and/or class. M K2
(5) They are able to write a complete, correct technical report and to refer sources appropriately. M K5
(6) They can present their own technical decisions and solutions objectively, clearly and convincingly orally and in writing. M K5
