【abstract】 This course is placed as the advanced course of Metallurgical Engineering Laboratory I. Students will propose advanced design of previous product and realize its final form. The most valuable award is given for the student who is selected by all the students and staff related to this class.
【object】 Students will achieve ability to find and solve the problems after evaluation meeting held after the final presentation. Several students will have the opportunity to make English presentation at AOTULE after selection meeting by staff members.
The aim of this course is to understand characteristics of metallic materials and their practical usages in daily life. By constructing structural and functional products associated with music instrument, equipment, transportation, students will experience the relationship between material selection and functionality of metal. Through this course, student will achieve originality, creativity and planning ability.
understand characteristics of metal
propose a product related to metal, e.g. equipment associated with audio, electricity, transportation, etc.
design a structure of product by schematic and exact drawings
be able to use tools for cutting and drilling
acquire creativity, communication skills and a sense of accomplishment
creativity, teamwork, product making, frame car, music box, high performance lead battery, fuel cell
|✔ Specialist skills||✔ Intercultural skills||✔ Communication skills||✔ Critical thinking skills||✔ Practical and/or problem-solving skills|
Group members will work on product design, material processing, construction of components.
Products are evaluated by staff and students on the date of the final presentation.

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 50 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Supplemental teaching materials will be given from instructor.
Nothing in particular
Achievement will be evaluated by presentation, report, performance of product, cooperativeness with group members, etc.
The prerequisite to take this course is that you have acquired the credits of "Metallurgical Engineering Laboratory I."
Without having acquired the credits of the above course, the credits of this course will not be counted as the necessary number of credits for graduation.
