  • Purpose and learning objectives

    Subject element Construction deals with dimensioning and construction of a physical product based on the identified specifications and load conditions with due consideration of the interaction with other subject elements having an impact on the entire construction.

    Knowledge

    The student will gain knowledge about:
     the practice of the profession and the subject area as well as key applied theory and methods, including:
    o (1) statics and the science of the strength of materials
    o (1) dimensioning of constructions
    o (2) commonly used machine elements and concepts
    o (2) 3D models and basic FEM analysis (Finite Element Method)
    o (2) risk analysis.
     practice and key applied theories and methods as well as the profession’s use of theories and methods, including:
    o (2) product dimensioning and its influence on other decision-making in a development process
    o (2) tolerancing and its impact on manufacturing processes, the price and use of a product.

    Skills

    The student will get the skills to:
     apply the key methodologies and tools of the subject area as well as the skills associated with employment in the industry, including:
    o (1) calculation of estimates on statically determined constructions
    o (1) identification of the various forms of tension arising in a load-bearing construction
    o (2) identification of critical points in a construction, strength calculation and dimensioning of a construction.
     assess practice-orientated issues and suggest and select possible solutions, including:
    o (2) demonstration of a practical sense of the design of physical products in relation to material strength
    o (2) incorporation of standard solutions in construction design
    o (2) calculation and determination of relevant tolerances for a given construction.
     communicate practice-orientated issues and solutions to partners and users, including:
    o (2) a well-structured account of dimensioning and construction solutions
    o (2) application of commonly used IT tools for the acquisition of knowledge, data processing, documentation and presentation.

    Competences

    The student will learn to:
     manage development-orientated situations, including:
    o (2) incorporation of inputs from and outputs to the other subject areas in their work, taking into account in particular:
    • the choice of material
    • producibility
    • assembly
    • function(ality).
     participate in academic and interdisciplinary cooperation based on a professional approach, including:
    o (2) engaging in interdisciplinary cooperation on the dimensioning of simple statically determined constructions.
     acquire new knowledge, skills and competencies in relation to the profession in a structured context.
