Precision Engineering Measurement & Design

Summer University Term 1: June 8th - July 3rd, 2020

Course price: 1,950 Euros

18 hours of class a week, 5 ECTS credit points, max. 25 participants

Registration deadline: May 8th, 2020

Overview

Precision Engineering Design & Measurement covers the fundamental practices common to all engineering majors in making and reporting basic engineering measurements and their use in designing high precision items. Students will learn about the engineering design process, commonly used engineering measurement tools, statistical data analysis, and standard uncertainty analysis methods. Three local tours at businesses and museums will punctuate how precision measurements are used in engineering design practice.

This course is an introductory engineering course and is therefore more suitable for undergraduate level-engineers (graduates from other fields are of course welcome). 

Learning Goals & Syllabus

    Goals

    Upon course completion students should have a working understanding of precision measurements and the engineering design process. Students will be familiar with how to approach engineering measurements, what uncertainty in measurements means in practice, and how to statistically examine engineering data in design.

    Syllabus

    The syllabus for Summer University 2020 will be available soon! Please click here to check the syllabus of 2019.

    You may find the syllabus useful when discussing with your home University whether the ECTS credits attainable for this course are accepted by them.

    Course components

    Four lecture days will involve faculty-accompanied tours where students will learn about precision measurement and design in both historic and current engineering practice. Student reports and problems for the course will be based on tour content. Faculty led discussions and reflections on the course content from a historical perspective will occur.

    Tour 1: German Science and Technology Museum

    Tour 2: BMW Plant - Berlin

    Tour 3: Berliner-Kindl-Schultheiss-Brauerei

    Tour 4: BAM (Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung)

    Course Assessments and Technology Requirements:

    Student grades will be comprised of performance on four homework assignments, one short written report, one practical quiz, and a culminating small-group student presentation. There is no required textbook for the course, students will be provided some handouts and should be prepared to take written notes during lectures. Students will need to bring a laptop computer with current versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint in order to complete course assignments.

    Learning Outcomes:

    Upon course completion students should have a working understanding of precision measurements and the engineering design process. Students will be familiar with how to approach engineering measurements, what uncertainty in measurements means in practice, and how to statistically examine engineering data in design.

      Prerequisites

      This course is intended for students from all engineering majors that have successfully completed a college calculus and physics course. The course content will be applicable and use examples from a variety of engineering disciplines, so students from all engineering majors are encouraged to participate.
