Course description and aims

【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.

Student learning outcomes

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.

Student will;
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

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

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.

Course schedule/Required learning
