Students work in groups of up to five students each. The group has to design, realize, test and evaluate a significant and innovative product in the context of “Technology Solutions for Sustainability”. The UN Sustainability Challenges may serve as inspiration (especially 7: Modern Energy and 13:
Protect the Planet, but also 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities and 12: Responsible Consumption).The product needs to be developed to the level of a tangible, technical prototype, a Minimal Viable Product (MVP) aiming for a solution to an identified problem that is sustainable. The products can range from designing a new power-source, a more efficient power/heat use, consumer awareness, new use of an existing product et cetera. This means it may relate to topics ranging from production and processing to sales and consumption.The only restriction is that the project cannot be the same as an executed project from previous project courses.
