Course description and aims

In this course, students will develop a novel mechanical system by the group work based on the design which was planned in the previous course "Creative Design of Mechanical Systems". Through brainstorming ideas, developing a machine, cyclically assessing and optimizing its performance, students will acquire skills to create, design and produce the machines and also learn about the group work, management, discussion and presentation. For this purpose, students will discuss in the group to establish the concept of mechanical system, will design and draft the system, will fabricate and purchase the parts if necessary and will manage the budget and schedule, supported by periodical reviews of the instructors. This course facilitates students ability to tackle unknown or unsolved problems and to successfully perform bachelor thesis researches.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of this course, students will be able to:
1) design and produce mechanical systems that satisfy specific requirements.
2) discuss to solve problems in the group.
3) tackle to various problems.
4) develop and embody mechanical systems.
5) exactly explain to reviewer through the presentation.

Class flow

Students produce mechanical systems according to the design and prototype planned in "Creative Design of Mechanical Systems". For the purpose to complete a mechanical system, students will design and draft the system, will fabricate and machine the parts. will manage the budget and schedule and make a final presentation, supported by twice reviews of the instructors.
