Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course is mainly project based. The student will work with an advanced design mission within their own area of interest, together with a team. The basic knowledge from materials chemistry, the lectures in this course  and other relevant subjects will be used to find solutions to the design problem. The course will provide skills in setting up specifications and carrying out innovative processes.

Intended learning outcomes

After finished course the student should be able to:

- explain how the innovation process is conducted on a  fundamental level

- pitch own idea to an audience

- develop functional solutions for product design

- set up performance  profile

- perform economic analysis

- formulate criteria for determining whether the product can be produced or not

In addition, the student should have obtained insights into how the process is effectively performed in a company.
