Aims
Upon successful completion of this minor, students should be able to:
  1. Describe activities of detail design phase and their impacts on each other
  2. Apply activities of detail design phase and best practices into the Student Team projects to produce a complete and precise physical description of parts for manufacturing and assembly.
  3. Apply activities of material and manufacturing process selection and best practices into the Student Team projects.
  4. Evaluate the results of applying product development activities and best practices into their Student Team project, and reflect on them
  5. Create and implement a personal pursuit project.
Content
Our society is constantly confronting major challenges in the fields of Health, Energy, Transportation, and Automation. To address these challenges, the UT Student Teams are putting a great deal of effort to design and develop innovative products/services/systems that are based on multidisciplinary approaches in cooperation with different societal stakeholders. To professionalize and increase these processes performance, the Student Teams can benefit from systematic product development approaches, and deliver more competitive results, which better comply with the society and stakeholders’ requirements.

This 15EC minor focuses on the detail design phase of product design and development. This phase takes the concept design and defines the complete specification of the geometry, materials, and tolerances of all the parts through the provision of detail drawings and assembly drawings. It also includes selection of materials (e.g. composite), manufacturing processes (e.g. injection molding and 3D printing), and machine tools (e.g. CNC machines). The result of detail design phase is the complete and precise physical description of all the parts of the product, which is then issued to the manufacturing companies for precise manufacture and assembly.

The minor is hosted by DesignLab and embedded under the examination board of Mechanical Engineering. The minor is a nine months program starting from quartile 1B of the first intake of the academic year. The minor is composed of 5EC of core educational activities, and the remaining 10EC relate to a personal pursuit project aligned with the product development related learning objectives the students are pursuing as Student Teams’ members. The lectures include the theoretical content about the product development, and are delivered in the first three months (quartile 1B). Included in the 5 EC core educational activities is elective content aiming at providing the flexibility to accommodate the different interests from the diverse teams and the various roles played by the teams’ members. The following core topics are offered within the minor:
  1. Detail design (1.5EC—compulsory): this topic focuses on the detail design phase of product design and development to define the complete specification of the geometry, materials, and tolerances of parts through the provision of detail drawings and assembly drawings, which can be issued to the manufacturing companies for precise manufacture and assembly.
  2. Materials and manufacturing processes + workshops (2.5EC—compulsory): this topic is about material and their manufacturability as well as manufacturing processes and their capability for processing materials. It also includes material and manufacturing process selection for a part.
  3. Design for machining (0.5EC—elective): this topic provides guidelines for designing parts for machining.
  4. Design for additive manufacturing (0.5EC—elective): this topic provides guidelines for designing parts for additive manufacturing.
  5. Design for injection moulding (0.5EC—elective): this topic provides guidelines for designing parts for injection moulding.
Topics 1 and 2 are compulsory, with total of 4EC (out of 5EC). To gain the remaining 1EC, the student must choose two topics out of topics 3, 4 and 5.

For the 10EC personal pursuit project, the students carry out a project aligned with their task in their Student Team and achieve their defined learning objectives. Students have until the end of the academic year to deliver the personal pursuit project.
The students should take the following steps:
  1. Define a project aligned with their task in their Student Team
  2. Define the learning objectives to be achieved by performing the project
  3. Suggest at least two staff members that would fit as advisor for the proposed project. The students must have at least one UT staff member their advisor. External advisors are also possible and welcome as long as you have a UT adviosr as well.
The minor coordinator assigns a staff member as an advisor. The coordinator together with the advisor evaluate the plan and assess its feasibility and alignment with the minor objectives. Once approved, the students will be guided by the assigned advisor through the project and in acquiring further knowledge and skills needed to complete the project.
Minor assessment:
  • The assessment of the 5EC course is project-based. The students must submit written report as evidence of applying the knowledge acquired in the course. The deadline for producing the evidence is within quartile 1B.
  • The assessment of the personal pursuit project is done by the project advisor and is based on the project work and evidence for achievement of the learning objectives and on the reflection on the work done. The students must submit written report as evidence by the end of the academic year.
  • Final grade weighting: 33% for the course and 67% for the personal pursuit project.
Please note: membership of a student team is required for participation in this minor (no member yet - info how to join)
