Abstract

European Global Product Realisation (EGPR) is an undergraduate group design project for the final year engineering students at City University, London. It involves collaborating with students from five different European universities on a commercial design project for an industrial partner. The aim of the project is to equip students with the necessary skills to solve real multidisciplinary design problems, using a systematic and structured engineering design process. In order to acquaint the students with the engineering design process, a preparatory project was set up between a UK-based manufacturer of screw compressors and the students at City University, London, prior to the main EGPR project. The task was to develop a concept for a remote monitoring system to be integrated into a screw compressor produced by Howden Compressors Ltd, with the aim of gathering operational parameters including power and mass flow rate. During the project, the students were required to use their existing engineering experience in order to find a niche area for their contribution in the design of this complex multidisciplinary system. This required close collaboration with the industrial partner to develop a common vision and approach. The students gradually realised that the concepts of physical sensing and performance calculating functions were the areas where the industrial partner was struggling, and it was mutually agreed for students to concentrate on this area. This paper describes achieved concepts, including brief overview of techniques used in the process. It also outlines benefits that the University, industrial partner, and students found through this collaboration.
