- Content and learning outcomes
As a precursor to the “Strength and Selection of Materials” course, this course will teach you about loads, forces, reaction and supports. You will subsequently be able to convert a simple design into a calculation model.
Topics covered on this course:
• Forces, moments and reactions
• Simple forces
• Line load
• Q and M curves
• From reality to model
- Type of instruction
Finally, the class will be divided into groups. Each group will be given a physical product and
tasked with converting it into a calculation model and associated calculations. This work is to
be presented to the rest of the class. Each group will have max. 10 min. to make its
The learning outcomes of the exam are identical with the learning outcomes of the subject(s)/modul(es)Exam in one or more subjectsSubject/module is tested with the following modules3277152, 3277153, 3277154, 3277155, 3277156, 3277157, 3277251, 3277252, 3277253, 3277254, 3277255, 3277160The second semester centres on a coherent project divided into two project periods. The
objective is to develop a new product comprising at least two moving parts and the associated production apparatus.
The first project period is devoted to product development and design. It is during this period
that you develop the actual product. The second period covers the areas of production and
business, and requires you to build up the company and production plant.
The work is carried out in groups of 3–5 students and involves the business community as far as possible.
The project begins with the preparation and submission of a synopsis, which has to be
approved by the teachers’ group. Once approved, it serves as the problem area for the
project. See FRONTER for guidelines about how to lay out the synopsis.
For the mid-term evaluation, you will be required to present your conclusions from the first
half of the assignment. The requirements in this regard are presented under ‘formal
Finally, you have to submit the full project report including both phases.
All evaluations are open to all your fellow students, unless special agreements with companies apply.
The teachers continuously assess attendance, input and assignments submitted with a
view to ensuring that all students are actively involved in the programme.Type of examCombined written and oral examinationFormal requirementsThe report must be based on an approved synopsis
-Max. 50 actual pages, including graphics (front page, table of contents and source
reference/bibliography does not count)
-Use an easily readable font in size 12
• Title page presenting the following information:
• Title of the report
• Your full name(s)
• The school name and logo
• The names of the associated teachers/supervisors
• Number of characters in the report, including spaces.
• For assignments that stem from companies – or which are closely linked to a given
company – the title page must also state the name of the company, as well as the
name and email address of a contact at the company.
-Exceeding the rapport extent (see above) can affect the grade. If the difference is significant, - is more than 25% - then formal requirements are not observed and it could result in a rejection of the project.
-Projects are generally expected to have numerous relations to the business community, so it is important that you CLEARLY reference company association on the title page, and state
whether the report may or may NOT be made public. See the section concerning publication.
-It is expected that reports will feature elements of visual communication including sketches,
figures, diagrams and so on.
-Please note that the projects will be checked for plagiarised content. Plagiarised content also includes the reuse of more than one sentence from your previous projects unless the source is clearly stated.
-Reports and synopses must be saved in PDF format and uploaded under “Besvarelse”
(Answers) in WISEflow.
NB: The maximum file size cannot exceed 25 MB – and appendices should be gathered in a
combined PDF file with a table of content as the first page. Excel and Microsoft Project
formats are exceptions, which are submitted in their original version. Appendices are not
taken into account of the assessment of the report.
-Reports uploaded as PDF image files will not be accepted. This means that text and tables
must be able to be edited, scanned and marked in the uploaded pdf format.
-For group submissions, makes sure that all group members submit the material in the relevant flows. The names of all group members must be stated on the title page or other form of front page.Individual exam or group examIndividual or group, 1-6 max participantsExam languagesEnglishDuration• Presentation: 5 min./stud. when 4 or more
