Good Practice Information

Design 2+ is an interdisciplinary project of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the Faculty of Design and Art, including the participation of students from the Faculty of Health Care Studies. Tasks are assigned by industrial partners to student teams.
These require development through a highly independent and responsible approach, in preparation for the competitive environment outside of academia. Through cooperating on projects, the teams have the opportunity to surpass the conventional boundaries of their study programmes. The estimated budget is EUR 20,000 per semester.

Evidence of success

Design 2+ can be considered as a pilot of the Creative Incubator project, which helps students to learn to communicate and collaborate in teams, increasing confidence and reducing the likelihood of work-based frictions.
