Course contents:
The course provides a "hands-on" introduction to selected key components in mechanical and process engineering. By using a project-based teaching approach for the subject the students will work in teams in order to solve a challenge. The project will give the students an opportunity to explore the basics of certain technologies and different types of components such for example engines / engine principles, pumps and compressors. The subject will also address new technological trends within topics such as energy storage and conversion, bioconversion, automation and robotics. Each student will work in groups to immerse themselves in one or more topics. Group work must take place on an independent basis with guidance from the course coordinator, where the groups must acquire knowledge of the respective topic by seeking information on their own and presenting the results to the other course participants.
Learning outcome:
After completing the course the student should know the structure and function of the important components in mechanical and process engineering in addition to in-depth knowledge about a selected subject based on the project.
