Course contents:

In this course, students will get a practical insight into colloaboration in a project, an overview of modern prototype technique and introduction to subjets such as Internet of Things, Robotics, Data Analysis and Artificial Intelligence in custom modules. These modules are the pathway which will form the basis for project work. Students will learn about the process of developing an idea through a practical approach to a problem based in a need. This development will take place with an external partner.

Design Projects will be team based where the focus is on planning the implementation an assigned project, but also create a dynamic collaboration within the group. Digital tools such as the CAD (Computer Aided Design) program "Autodesk Fusion 360"  will also be introduced at the start of the course. As a supplement will be an intensive course report writing to be used to document the group's process to develop their idea. The aim of this subject is documentation of work done in the course in the form of a design report or a feasability study. 

Learning outcome:
  • Introduction to modern CAD tool ( "Autodesk Fusion 360")
  • Introduction to selected topics.
  • Introduction to relevant digitale tools such as Autodesk Fusion 360.
  • Practical teamwork Increased communication ability and documentation of projects.
  • The goal of the project work is to provide the students with experience in solving real-life problems. 
Learning activities:
LecturesWorkshops related to the development of idea of ¿¿day and night (depends on the number registered) Exercises and "Tutorials" (Homework) to "Fusion 360"project, eg in a team or individuallysupervised self-study  
Teaching support:
The students get close personal supervision for the assignment. In addition, the students can use e-mail in order to ask the course responsible specific questions. Students receive personal guidance in connection with project work. In addition, students can freely use e-mail to ask questions of teachers.
