Course Description

This class is a special lecture and the invitation of lecturers development engineers at the front line of the Honda R&D Co., Ltd., Honda R&D Co., Ltd. is a development department of Honda motor Co., Ltd. Based on the problems surrounding automobiles, lectures are given in the field of automobiles, such as the engine and the automatic transmission mechanism as the driving part, steering stability by chassis technology, aerodynamic characteristics, management of generated heat, design of automobiles, etc. in various fields .
Although this lesson is mainly lecture type, we carry out tasks and exercises in pairs and a discussion is held.
In this lesson, you will acquire knowledge, techniques and attitudes on the degree awards policies DP1 to DP6.

Course Objectives

Students who are aiming at automobiles (one of the comprehensive products in the mechanical engineering field) with the aim of deepening their practical applications and understanding of engineering, and by developing individual technologies that make up the automobile that plays an important role in social life Engineering understanding and explanation.

Grading Policy

We will evaluate the results of the final test (80%) and assignment (20%).
In addition, we will explain the answer after the test and the assignment. An example of the answer is shown on LMS.

Requirements(Assignments)

Please read the lesson content posted on LMS. Please read through the applicable range in the reference book and understand the contents. Please learn again the contents of the lecture of automobile engineering, the introduction of automobile, and automobile structure theory 1 to 3 if you have learned already, and prepare yourself before attending class. Also, since I will give some kind of homework such as assignment as appropriate, please finish it by next class. Approximately 1 hour for preparation, 2 hours for assignment and review.

Note

In addition to using LMS as an independent learning support, we also carry out a test and questionnaire function of Mobile-MARS as an interactive class as appropriate.
