Content of Design Training lessons is design elaboration of submited machine
design concept, or structural element of specific equipment (machinery).
Students start from structural and design base, from literary and patent
background research of given problem and from theoretic piece of knowledge,
which they acquired during previous studies. They will try these findings and
knowledges actively apply to given constructional problems. Students will
elaborate final report of design training which include technical report,
computational part and graphical documentation.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Students will improve their skills actively apply piece of knowledge, which they gain over a period of previous studies at solving of particular constructional problems.
They improve in methodical access and skills to analyze and consequently to solve given constructional problem.
