Learning objectives (competencies)

Objectives Competences Taxonomy levels

The students pally the methodical development process with emphasis on the concept phase for a machatronic product. They deepen the applied knowledge in the filed of systems engineering by doing a semester project in teams of max. 9 students. At the same time the non-technical skills are also trained.
Conceptional implementation of a development project for a mechtronic component or system, advanced understanding of application of simulation methods (fe-method), fundamentals of methods of the product development process (VDI 2206, VDI 2221, use-value analysis, FMEA, creativity methods), integration of simulation tools in the product development process, integration of actuators and sensors, signal analysis, multi-functional materials (piezoelectric mateials for actuator and sensor application, fundamentals of  fiber reinforced materials for energy efficient structures, functional prototyps with additive manufacturing. F, M, S L1 to L6
