During the first half of the course the students are working 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. The basis of the course is that the practical applied function/process should be put in focus of the activities.

During the second half of the course the students are working with a design/product development project. Some basic manufacturing and assembly work is also included in the project. The project should in addition to a manufactured product also result in both a written report and an oral presentation why lectures regarding written and oral presentation are given during the project.
