Design Exercise I (KÜ I)

KÜ IThe aim of this course (4 weekly lecture hours) for students of BPT, IP, MB and WING is to gain a basic understanding of the methodical design of machines. The contents are conveyed by means of a design task from mechanical engineering, which is worked on in small groups.

Design Exercise II (KÜ II)

KÜ IIThe course serves as a practical supplement to Machine Elements II in the scope of 2 weekly lecture hours (practical course). The knowledge acquired, especially in the areas of gear design and calculation, is applied and deepened in the form of manual drawings and accompanying calculations.

Constructive project course (KoPra)

KoPraThe project course in the scope of 6 weekly lecture hours provides an insight into the development and construction of complex technical systems based on a central problem from the industrial environment. It serves the interdisciplinary application of previous study contents as well as the teaching of important methodical and social competences, for example with regard to project management and teamwork.

Concept development of innovative products (KIP)

KIPThe aim of this 2 weekly lecture hour course is to train future development engineers for early product development phases. The students apply methods and tools already learned in a team to develop concepts for solving a key problem.

Machine elements I (ME I)

ME IThe course of 4 weekly hours of lectures and 2 weekly hours of exercises is aimed at students of mechanical engineering and teaches the function, design, calculation and standardization of basic machine elements – the basic building blocks of all machines – at a university level.

Machine elements II (ME II)

ME IIBased on Machine Elements I, this course covers the function, design, calculation and standardization of complex machine elements, such as rolling bearings, gear drives or couplings, in 4 weekly hours of lecture and
2 weekly hours of exercises.

Methodical and computer-aided design (MRK)

MRKThe aim of the lecture (3 weekly lecture hours + 1 weekly lecture hour of exercise) is to impart the basics of methodical and computer-aided design to advanced Master’s students. In addition to recognized theories and procedural models of methodical product development, modern means of computer support are dealt with and deepened in a corresponding exercise.

Practical product development with 3D CAD systems (PPE-3D-CAD)

PPE-3D-CADThe aim of the lecture with exercise (2 weekly lecture hours) is to give students an understanding of the function, structure and advanced operation of 3D-CAD systems used in practice. In addition, their integrated CAx add-on modules are treated as central synthesis tools in the computer-aided product development process.

Computer-aided product development (RPE)

RPEWithin the scope of the course (2 weekly lecture hours), the students are taught knowledge about computer-assisted product development. Theory and use of the computer-based tools are also essential teaching contents of the practical course. The seven experiments provide a basic knowledge of the computer-aided tools used.

Robust Design and Tolerancing (RDTol)

RPEThe course (2 weekly lecture hours) conveys important ideas and basics of robust design and tolerancing. Beside this, the students get to know advanced methods and techniques, such as robustness analysis, tolerance analysis and tolerance-cost-optimization, as well as their application using state-of-the-art software tools.

Technical Drawing I (TD I)

TD IThe course of 4 weekly lecture hours (practical course
with introductory lecture) imparts basic knowledge and skills in creating and reading technical drawings, the central communication platform in mechanical engineering.

Technical Drawing II (TD II)

TD IIThe course in the scope of a 2 weekly lecture hour internship imparts basic knowledge and skills in the modeling of components and assemblies in the 3D CAD system, the central computer tool in mechanical engineering.

Technical product design (TPG)

TPGThis lecture with a further exercise (4 weekly lecture hours) focuses on future design engineers. The design of technical systems under consideration of different Design for X aspects will be discussed.

Technology start-up seminar (TechStart)

TechStartSubject of the seminar, in the scope of 2 weekly lecture hours, are questions of the commercialization of technology-oriented business ideas and their application-oriented implementation via business start-ups. Under the guidance of competent experts, students develop viable business concepts for their (own) technical business idea.

Tribology and surface technology (TO)

TOIn the course of the lecture (2 weekly lecture hours) students are taught basic practical knowledge in the fields of tribology and surface technology. Next to the lecture, a voluntary practical course (2 weekly lecture hours) can be completed.

Rolling bearing technology (WLT)

WLTThe course (4 weekly lecture hours) focuses on future development specialists in the field of rolling bearing technology. In-depth knowledge of the design and construction of rolling bearings is imparted and the interaction of various engineering disciplines is demonstrated using rolling bearings as an example.
