Course Objectives The main objective of the course is to practice an engineering capstone design project in multidisciplinary domain. Students are organized to work in multidisciplinary teams to gain a broad experience on multidisciplinary engineering design process. The course prepares students with the necessary foundations and recognized skills starting from need identification/project proposal up to the detailed design and/or computer implementation. The lectures are organized to focus on advantages and limitations of multidisciplinary design and emphasize capstone engineering design projects with cross disciplinary design features. Design projects are required to be fully compatible with the available contemporary engineering technology.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • 1. to collect and analyze available engineering information on a specific design need with multidisciplinary features
  • 2. to apply knowledge, skills and processes from several disciplines to conduct engineering analysis and practice engineering design
  • 3. to develop team skills, consulting and organization in multidisciplinary domain properly using project management techniques
  • 4. to make oral/written design presentations
Course Content Design process and methodology; identification of engineering disciplines, features and importance of multidisciplinary engineering design; systems engineering; need identification and assessment, problem definition; creativity and idea generation; methods and tools of functional/physical/task decomposition; design representation techniques, conceptual modeling of energy, information and material flow in technical systems; idea selection, decision schemes; product architecture
