  • Must have knowledge about key technologies for intelligent manufacturing and service design.
  • Must have knowledge about sustainable and modularized manufacturing.
  • Must have knowledge about innovative and sustainable service design.


  • Must be able to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of intelligent manufacturing and service design in relation to specific services and applications.
  • Must be able to identify intelligent solutions and state-of-art technologies for intelligent manufacturing and service design.
  • Must be able to familiarize him/herself with new manufacturing and service technologies.
  • Must be able to explain the scientific method and approach used in the project as well as its advantages and disadvantages - also compared to alternative methods / approaches.


  • Must have competencies in applying project- and team-based learning to complete a team project, including preparation of problem definition, coherent analysis and writing of a technical report with clear formulation of results and conclusions, and with proper use of source references.
  • Must have competencies in assessing the usefulness of intelligent manufacturing and service design technologies in relation to different services and applications.
  • Must have the competencies in deploying the knowledge, skills and competencies acquired in the course “Intelligent Manufacturing (and Service Design)” developing this project.
  • Must have gained an understanding of the methodological and science-related approach to the management of the project's problem as well as its advantages and disadvantages.

Type of instruction

The module is carried out as group-based problem-oriented project work. The group work is carried out as an independent work process in which the students themselves organize and coordinate their workload in collaboration with a supervisor. The project is carried out in groups with normally no more than 6 members.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 15 ECTS course module the expected workload is 450 hours for the student.
