Course detail

Year Project II - Machining

FSI-DR3Acad. year: 2020/2021

The course “Year Project” is aimed at the systematic and independent work when solving the technical problem in the branches of engineering technology related to machining, design of tools and technological projects. Introductory or partial problems, which will dealt with in detail in the bachelor thesis, are solved within these branches. The Project is concluded by working out a short technical report.

The goal of the Project is to acquaint students with the methods of performing a specific technical problem in simple applications, particularly in the introductory analytical part. Students majoring in machining technology will learn how to design a technological process for production of simple shaft components, gear wheels etc., including the design of a machine tool, tools, clamps, measuring instruments and cutting conditions.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Compulsory attendance in all lessons is required and checked by the tutor. It can be recompensed by a consultation of solved problem at a professional workplace outside the faculty, or visit of technical library on the base of the tutor previous agreement, in individual cases. Longer absence is recompensed according to the tutor instructions.
