Abstract

A project-based learning experience has been recently developed at the University of Bologna within the second-level degree in Automation Engineering. The most relevant aspect is a co-tutoring activity jointly performed by teachers both from the mechanical area and from the automatic control area. The project was related to the design of an automated assembly system, developed for a local company that is leader in the production of technical cases. After a description of the educational goals, the paper discusses the phases of the activity and the main methodological aspects, then briefly presents the adopted tools for the design and simulation of the developed mechatronic system and finally discusses the achieved results.
