MM424 Graduation Projects
Purposes of "MM424 Mechanical Engineering Applications II"
- The courses MM423 and MM424 Mechanical Engineering Applications I-II which have an important role at the course plan is prepared by students either themselves or group work.
- The aim of this Project is to provide the students an opportunity to experience all stages of design at engineering problems, to develop the students' creativities and their team work consciousness, help them to develop themselves professionally and ethically and to gain experience at oral and written presentations.
- Mechanical Engineering Applications projects are specified at the first 3 weeks of each semester by considering the students prefereneces.In the case of group studies, students from other departments may be included at the project.
- Projects should include more synthesis than analysis and the studies which develop students' creativity capabilities.
- Beginning the project, project name, its purpose, definitions of the studies and its stages, number of the students at the team and their job-sharing shoul be explained. After all the projects arespecified, Department Administration announces them.
