5.      Specific goals for the course

After the completion of the course, the students will be able to:

·        Model trajectories of masses with and without aerodynamic drag.

·        Develop a software tool to allow trajectories be optimized.

·        Analyse the static and dynamic stresses of elements of an engineering mechanism.

·        Optimally design structural elements of an engineering mechanism.

·        Perform a test to acquire an engineering material property.

·        Develop and test software code to process sensor data.

·        Design and construct and test an electronic hardware solution to process sensor data.

·        Construct a roman catapult “mangonel” using tools, materials and assembly instructions.

·        Operate and evaluate the “mangonel” for functional and structural performance.

·        Validate theoretical models by comparison with experiments.

·        Integrate skills to innovatively redesign an element of the “mangonel”.

·        Participate and cooperate in a team.
