Content, progress and pedagogy of the
The module adds to the knowledge obtained in 1st and
- Must have knowledge about the advantages and practical
limitations of autonomous systems deployed in at least one
- Must have knowledge of the scientific basis and possible
engineering solutions for the specific application area.
- Must be able to make a requirement specification for the
implementation of autonomous systems in a given situation.
- Must be able to seek out and develop a solution and present it
in the form of sketches, diagrams, drawings and virtual, as well as
- Must be able to justify the benefits of a developed
- Must be able to independently plan and carry out a development
on basis of a given problem.
- Must be able to choose and apply relevant methods and
- Must be able to devise how a relatively complex autonomous
system can be specified, designed, managed and implemented, and in
a professional manner to prove this.
- Must have the ability to assess important impacts, such as
material flows, equipment or asset utilization, and other economic
aspects, of the solution.
- Must be able to demonstrate engineering skills within the
implementation and/or deployment of autonomous systems and to
display their ability to perform engineering work.
- Must be able to take responsibility for their own professional
Type of instruction
The project work is carried out as an independent work process
in which the students themselves organise and coordinate their
workload in collaboration with a supervisor. The project may be
carried out individually or in groups. The project may be finalized
with a project report or in the form of a scientific paper with
Extent and expected workload
Since it is a 30 ECTS course module the expected workload is 900
hours for the student.
