Principles of Digital Fabrication Course - Deadline March 10

Monday, March 13, 2017 to Friday, May 12, 2017

Venue: FabLab Oulu

The course is open for

During the course, students will build an interactive robot that combines mechanical, electrical and software components using the tools and devices existing at our FabLab.

The course follows project based learning approach combined by 6 practical tutorial like-lectures where students will be provided with basic principles and guidelines.

Students will learn how to design mechanical components with solid modeling tools, how to use those parts together with sensors and actuators to create a physical gadget (robot), and how to program the robot so it is able to interact with the world around it. Students will work in small teams.

This course is an excellent introduction to digital fabrication and modern computer science and their surrounding fields. The course also introduces the students to the use of University of Oulu’s versatile FabLab digital instant manufacturing processes. The project instructors are students, doctoral students, post-doctoral researchers and professors.

The course is 5 ECTS credits.

Registration is open on WebOodi
