The Product Design Project (PDP) is an independent course which belongs to the specialized field of the lectures “Machine Elements” and “Mechatronics”. Within the scope of this project work, a complex task is worked on in teams of four students comprehensively.

The task offers the opportunity to try out the concepts for design, simulation and analysis of technical systems which are taught in MM I and MM II. Thus, the complexity of such tasks should be understood and their fascination imparted.
