Twin Programme

Mechanical Engineering Design and Manufacturing / Linköping

The module makes focus on developing abilities and skills in mechanical design and aspects of manufacture what is important features of the competence in product development. Through the studies of the module “Computer-aided Analysis of Structures”students learn to perform engineering analysis of mechanical structures and get an opportunity to practice by carrying out individual project. Theoretical background in numerical methods, fluid mechanics and heat transfers serve as the basis for engineering system analysis including phenomena of different physical nature. Aspects of manufacturing technology applicable in developing technological path for originally designed parts id touched.
