In the course the students work in groups during experimental exercises with tasks connected to a commercial product. The experimental exercises are based on the technology platform of mechanical engineering e.g. product design, production technology, material science and machine element. Each experimental exercise is preceded by lectures given by experts from the current field of subject and possibly educational visits in the workshop of the department. The basis of the course is that the practical applied function/process should be put in focus of the activities.
