Project: developing the concept into a detailed design with a functional prototype

Here one could ask students to develop products based on themes - “Garbage compactors, Energy from kitchen waste, etc” making sure that the problems identified by the students within the themes possess an engineering content and insisting on some facets of design for assembly, for manufacturability, ......and so on while preparing the design and the prototypes. One could encourage students to innovate, arrive at multiple solutions and conduct a detailed design of one of the solutions.

Prototyping requires funds and effort, so it pays to identify one subsystem of the design of the whole machine. One can insist on prototyping demonstrating at least that sub-system, if not the whole system.
