Additional information:

For online students:

The course will mainly be carried out as an online course of study.Up to 3 compulsory seminar days are held according to the plan provided at the start of the semester.An online race means that all communication between supervisor and students is organized through a digital learning platform.

For all:

The course requires 3D modeling software to be used for exercises and assignments (free student versions available).

Use of your own laptop is required (the machine must be suitable for CAD).

The Autodesk Fusion 360 program works on Windows and Apple OS.

Compulsory assignments

  • Compulsory assignment

Further on evaluation


Forms of assessment:

Accepted submissions are improved and compiled as a comprehensive submission with the associated theory and modeling task. The assignment is given over a period of 3-4 weeks. The final grade is given based on the final portfolio.Additional information on continuation:

Previously approved mandatory work requirements can be applied for approval.

Special conditions

Compulsory activity from previous semesters can be approved by the department.

Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Product Design and Technology (BTEKD)
