The minor Technology to Innovate creates a multicultural and multidisciplinary environment for students of very different backgrounds to cooperate in the field of product design, innovation and smart sensors. You will work with students from different schools (multi-disciplinary) and countries (multi-cultural) within diverse project teams and learn the value of working with people with different specialties while designing and creating a new, innovative and useful service or product. You will enjoy a large amount of freedom and independence, but will also be accountable for the actions you take.

You will get lectures on Design Methodology, Sustainability, Creativity, Research Skills, Sensor Technology and other areas of your choice, but most of the time will be used in a practical project that aim to design products tailored for specific needs and develop those product ideas into working prototypes.

We admit students with a technical or IT background, but students from non-technical fields that would like to enhance their understanding of the possibilities of new technology applied to their own field are also welcome.
