Abstract

The lecture “Principles of engineering design and production systems” is a lecture attended by Bachelor students in their second semester of studies in mechanical engineering at the Technische Universität München. Since April 2013, the lecture has been extended by a student project, in which the approx. 800 participants, divided in groups of 15, were asked to carry out a development process and conceptualize an innovative product by applying the contents taught in the lecture. The goal was to increase the learning effect of the course through the benefits of experiential learning and project work. The participants are expected to develop technical and social skills, which are important for their future career as engineers. The motivation for restructuring the course, the contents of lecture and project, observations and feedback collected after the first project completion, as well as improvement suggestions are presented in this paper.
