What is Advanced Mechanical Engineering (SEAM6202)?

The course gives a condensed “dive” into the theories and practical applications in important fields of mechanical engineering:

  • Material selection based on mechanical properties and material-specific design optimizations for strength, stiffness, weight and cost

  • Material selection in combination with corrosion prevention. Engineering of corrosion prevention systems

  • Engineering calculations for stiffness, strength and transfer of power and torque. Tools for calculation and documentation

  • Engineering of machine elements such as gears, other transmission elements, coupling elements and fasteners

  • Production methods, subtractive and additive methods, including 3D-printing. Production methods vs. production volume

  • Drawings and feature control in drawings: Modular structures, BOM, references, reference hierarchy and tolerances. Arithmetic vs. statistical tolerance stack up

  • Knowledge of standards: ISO, EN, MIL, SAE, NORSOK and others

  • The course deals with the theory of the various fields. This is complemented by using the knowledge in engineering calculation exercises, using realistic cases.


  • Not presented during Spring 2019

Why take this course?

  • Refresh and update knowledge in mechanical engineering

  • Refresh calculation- and optimization techniques

  • Enhance the design of systems with realistic engineering

  • Overcome any threshold to apply practical engineering in projects

  • Overcome any threshold to document practical engineering in projects

Who should take this course?

  • Design- and project engineers working with mechanical developments that calls for engineering

  • Design- and project engineers that wants to start working with practical engineering

  • Systems engineers designing systems that feature mechanical engineering

  • Project managers that wants to improve their control with the mechanical engineering activities in their projects

  • Master students that wants to supplement the knowledge in other courses, and wants to get a practical grip on engineeringcalculations


The courses are organized as intensive one-week courses each with 5 days of lectures.  During this week, the lectures last from 0830 to 1630 each day. The courses are a mixture of lectures and work in groups.  Masterstudents and others taking courses for credit will work on a written assignment which is due 10 weeks after the end of the course.  A completed course with approved written assignment will give 7.5 studypoints.  


The price for attending a course depends on whether you take the course for credit or not.  To get credit for the course, you need to hand in a written assignment.

  • Alternative 1: Attendance only kr. 15.000,-
  • Alternative 2: Attendance and written assignment kr. 20.000,-

The price includes course material, coffee and lunch during the course. For alternative 2, the price also includes supervision and grading of the written assignment.


The registration deadline for each course is 2 weeks before course starts.

We accept registrations also after the deadline, provided there are available seats. Each course has a limited number of seats, so please sign up early. We reserve the right to cancel courses with too low participation.
