Abstract
The course is a hands-on introduction to the tools that are necessary to design and develop physical artefacts.
Description

This course is the first course of the Robotics specialisation. 

The course will give an overview of the most important manufacturing methods like 3D printing, NC milling, laser cutting or moulding. In addition, we will explain how to design simple electric circuits to handle sensors and actuators and how to design printed circuit boards. These techniques will allow students to design physical prototypes on their own at the end of the course. 


Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student should be able to:

  • analyse and compare the main manufacturing methods
  • model 3D parts and assemblies using Computer Aided Design (CAD) Software at beginner level
  • select the best manufacturing process for a component
  • design simple electronic systems and circuit boards
  • use different manufacturing tools to produce parts
  • prototype complete, but simple mechatronic systems
Ordinary exam
Exam type:

Exam variation:
D2G: Submission of written work for groups with following oral exam supplemented by the work submitted.
Exam description:

Hand-in with following oral exam supplemented by the hand-in. The group project report consist of: 

  • a small written report describing the developed prototype 
  • documentation and design files. 

Duration of the oral exam: 15 minutes group presentation followed by 25 minutes for each student (incl. voting). 

Group size: 2-3 persons (4 persons can be permitted if the project is very ambitious)
