A project-oriented course is described in which teams of students learn to apply knowledge from lectures on measurement, system simulation and transducer technology by creating in a structured way original mechatronic systems. Starting point of the project is a specific transducer that first has to be fully characterised by measurements and modelling. A next step is the design of a mechatronic system using this transducer. The design must be evaluated, simulated and finally built, validated and demonstrated. Students follow in a creative atmosphere a strict design trajectory while learning to act in a team (4 persons), to organise themselves, and to be successful despite deadlines (2 weeks) and limited resources.
