Course - Mechatronics - AIS2131
AIS2131 - Mechatronics
Lessons are not given in the academic year 2023/2024
The course provides an introduction to design of mechatronic systems and contains a selection of the following topics:
- Software interfacing with physical systems
- Computer-aided design
- Fundamental mechanics of materials
- Sensor fundamentals
- Kinematics and mechanisms
- Transmissions and drives
- Mechatronic prototyping techniques
- Kinesthetic haptic systems
More details on the curriculum will provided during the start of semester.
- The candidate is able to explain and elaborate on the design of mechatronic systems.
- The candidate is able to compare, analyse and evaluate theory and methods presented in the course.
- The candidate is able to design, build and test simple mechatronic systems, including software, control systems, sensors and actuators, and hardware.
- The candidate is able to explain when mechatronic systems are suitable for solving challenges in automation engineering or product development.
- The candidate is able to explain the role of mechatronics in an industry 4.0 setting.
- The candidate is able to apply design and engineering principles for mechatronic systems subjected to real world environments.
- The candidate is able to apply mechatronic problem-solving to unstructured problems.
- The candidate is able to contribute as part of a team.
Learning methods and activities
Learning activities generally include a mix of lectures, tutorials and practical lab/project work. A constructivist approach for learning is endorsed, with focus on problem solving and practical application of theory.
Further on evaluation
The final grade is based on an overall evaluation of the portfolio, which consists of a number of works delivered through the semester. The portfolio contains assignments that are carried out, digitally documented and submitted during the term. Both individual and team assignments may be given. Assignments are designed to help students achieve specific course learning outcomes, and formative feedback is given during the period of the portfolio. The re-sit exam is an oral exam.
