Construction Project – Product Development

level of course unit

First cycle, Bachelor

Learning outcomes of course unit

Students are able to:
 know and apply the fundamentals of construction processes.
 assess and analyse the methods of construction.
 plan, define and design a product with its respective requirement calculations, concept
developments, assessments of solutions and designs.
 develop a product in a structured manner and in line with standards and norms while taking
safety into account.
 decide on and assess special characteristics for individual and mass production while taking
manufacture, assembly and costs into account.
 produce the entire documentation for a construcion (e.g. specifications, functional analysis, functional specification, technical drawing, assembly instruction, docu-mentation).
