During their education the students have to create a system and prepare all the necessary documentation of their system development, which will serve as basis for independent system creation for future generations.

Additional Info

  • Period of implementation: 100 Hours
  • Country where the practice was developed : Slovenia
  • Provider of the practice : SIC Ljubljana
  • Targetg group: 17-19 y.o. students, EQF 4 level
  • How to implement the practice :

    One of the goals of the educational programme in the students’ final year is to create a mechatronic system independently, with a few assistance of a mentor. Students have the possibility to look into the existing documentation of the mechatronic systems of previous generations in order to get ideas and design their system more easily.

  • Prerequisite knowledge:
    • - Operation of machining machines
    • - Materials
    • - Electrical sources
    • - Programming of controllers
    • - Electrical components
    • - Preparation of electrical and mechanical technical documentation.
  • Main learning outcomes from the practice :
    • - Description of a task to be solved.
    • - Explanation of the solution.
    • - Identifying material needed for the job.
    • - Calculating and defining the material needed.
    • - Analyse the mistakes that occurred.
    • - Invention of technical solutions for the assembly.
    • - Demonstration of the created system.
    • - Analysis of the completed work considering the set goals. 
  • Needed/Suggested digital tools:
    • - Computer
    • - Controller
    • - Measuring instruments
    • - Software.
  • The practice was carried: : In Classroom or Lab
  • Critical points to shift towards STEM learning and solutions:
    • - The critical point is when the students have to define their idea and prepare the initial documentation.
    • - The critical point is when the students have to build a system based on the technical drawing, prepared by them.
    • - The critical point is performing calculations and the choice of appropriate materials and components based of these calculations
  • Positive aspects of participatory learning :
    •  - The students learn everything about the individual elements and materials that have been used.
    • - The students independently develop the system. 
  • Negative aspects of participatory learning:
    • - Students may « get lost » and need guidance
    • - Students set themselves a too high goal for their current knowledge
    • - The students’ idea is financially to demanding
  • Included green education (if any):

    The students disassemble the systems of previous generations and use some of their elements in the new systems.
