Course description

In the course the students get to know main principles of leading teams.

Learning outcomes

After passing this course successfully students are able to ...

  • explain the role of leadership in the different stages of team development (for example by Tuckman) and to derive relevant leading actions (for example directive leadership in the forming phase).
  • diagnose dynamics in project teams using models (for example rank dynamics, drama triangle, TZI) and to develop and argue case-related concrete opportunities for activities (for example delegation of responsibility, critical discussion).

Course contents

  • leadership styles and actions (in leading projects teams)
  • leadership tools in project teams
  • consequences of not leading
  • role conflicts "colleague" and "project leader"
  • conflicts and difficult situations in leading project teams

Course description

Self-dependent execution and solving of an individual project task in the field of mechatronics/ robotics

Methodology

Project work

Learning outcomes

After passing this course successfully students are able to ...

  • define a project based on a rough conceptual assignment
  • develop a concrete phase approach for the assigned project based on generic system engineering models; according to the assigned topic this may also include (rapid) prototyping methods
  • create a project plan (Gantt-chart and project structure plan (PSP)) with regard to the dimensions of time, financial requirements and resource allocation
  • perform a feasibility evaluation according to project progress (if applicable twice – once after having finished the logical system model, and a second time after having completed the physical system design); this includes the modification of the initial Gantt-chart and PSP according to the findings of these feasibility considerations
  • implement the respective project starting with kick-off via customer requirement analysis and 1-2 progress report(s)/ -presentation(s) up to technical set-up, final project presentation and technical documentation, within the course timeframe (scheduled project presentations and meetings)

Course contents

  • project definition, requirement specification, feasibility
  • kick-off
  • project planning und -execution
  • functional model
  • system design
  • prototype development
  • progress reports, final presentation
  • writing of a scientific project report
