PRINCIPLES OF MACHINE DESIGNED
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Knowledge and understanding:
At the end of the course, students will have acquired the basic knowledge of the mechanical design .
The student will be able to perform the design and verification of some simple structural elements, with particular reference to the organs of
The student will have the tools to critically evaluate a structural/functional design of mechanical components.
The student must possess the ability to clearly present a technical report on the design of simple structural elements.
