Evaluation of grades

The module is not graded (only study achievements)..


Integrated design engineering education I:
  • Descriptive geometry (projections, sections, unwindings, penetrations)
  • Technical drawing (types of drawing, content and creation of drawings, taking into account standards)
  • Introduction to computer-aided design

Integrated design engineering education II:

Lectures provide students with fundamental knowledge in the subjects of design theory and machine elements. Accompanying refresher courses in the CAD system Onshape are offered, in which the students work independently on the computer.

In detail, students are taught basic knowledge in the following modules:

Design Theory:

  • The design process in general
  • The planning phase
  • The concept phase
  • The design and elaboration phase

Machine elements:

  • Application of clearance and interference fits
  • Strength calculation of components
  • Component connections
  • Torque transmission

CAD exercises:

  • Application of the CAD system Onshape

Group work:

  • Independent work on the CAD system
  • Organized teamwork

Competencies / intended learning achievements

1. Lecture

Students will be able to:

  • explain and apply basic geometrical methods of descriptive geometry
  • explain and apply the rules for making technical drawings
  • read, understand and create simple technical drawings.

2. Exercise

Students will be able to:

  • represent three-dimensional objects in the two-dimensional drawing plane (multiview orthographic projection)
  • create section views, penetrations, uncoilings and technical curves
  • create and dimension simple drawings
Students will be able to
  • use a CAD system
  • work out concepts based on the fundamentals of design theory and machine elements.
  • to proceed methodically with concrete tasks.
  • organize and moderate work meetings and sessions.
  • work in a team.
  • present project results.
