Digital Engineering (digital fabrication, rapid prototyping, IoT, architecture, development tools, programming language)
JULY 06 — 24, 2020
The program provides students with a challenging task of creating a proof of concept prototype of a raw idea from scratch in 15 days of intense group workflow.
The workflow will include:
- Lectures on digital fabrication;
- Methods of rapid prototyping;
- Programming, etc.
Also, program accepts student ideas for realization so it’s a great opportunity for student entrepreneurs.
Students will gain theoretical knowledge and practical experience of:
- teach students to create and manage projects from idea to finished product;
- teach how to work with various machine tools with programmed control;
- teach how to apply the knowledge and skills acquired in the study of general technical disciplines;
- develop design, engineering and computational skills;
- develop students' technical and creative thinking;
- develop the ability to work in a team;
- develop the ability to collect, analyze and organize information.

During the program, various methods of production digitization will be discussed in relation to individual projects. Alongside the working out of the concepts, participants will be trained on digital production and will gain experience in intensive teamwork in the blitz-design format.
The learning process is based on project activities using modern digital production equipment. The final work is the creation of a technical project that solves a specific task chosen by the students.
In the process of implementing the program, the following tasks are solved:
- to teach students to create and manage projects from an idea to finished product;
- to teach how to work with various machine tools with programmed control;
- to teach how to apply knowledge, skills and abilities gained in the study of general technical disciplines;
- to develop students’ design, engineering and computational skills;
- to develop students' technical and creative thinking;
- to develop students’ ability to work in a team;
- to develop students’ ability to collect, analyze and systematize information.
