The course aims at giving the student knowledge, skills and experience from taking part in an industrially based mechatronic development project, which is conducted up to a working prototype. The principal design of the product has been formed in the course EIEN45 Applied Mechatronics. It is essential that the work is done in a team with competences from various fields.

The project is done during two study periods. The course participants should develop the mechatronic parts of those projects or other purely mechatronic products.

The development process starts with extensive information search, brain storming, and evaluation, activities which often encompass 30-40% of the total work load. This has been done in the course EIEN45  Applied Mechatronics. Then follows in this course selection of concept, constructive design of the product idea, ordering of components, building, testing, and adjustments.

The course concludes with the official presentation of the designed products, where representatives from industry, course leaders, and the press take part.
