Exercise: Propose a project for first year students across existing disciplines within engineering. Think Blue Sky – No limits, No problems with colleagues, study board, expenses etc. The project shall include basic knowledge from different engineering areas represented in your group. The starting point shall be a problem that has a context and the student need to analyze it to fully understand the problem Be creative, use brain storm, mind map or other tools. Deliveries: A written project proposal (assignment) incl. “Environment”: –Group size, number of student’s, Time (hours, credits) Learning goals or possibilities for the students (Assessment) A short presentation (max. 10 min) of the above
