The course will combine a theoretical understanding of rapid prototyping processes with hands-on experience in a lab setting, providing students with both the scientific background and valuable professional skills. Namely, the course will provide students with a basic knowledge of innovation and product development processes, as well as introduce students to modern technologies for prototyping.

Students will gain an understanding of the various design phases and the conditions under which rapid prototyping is most effective, and will have the opportunity to learn through doing and experiment in prototyping using modern tools.

Learning Outcomes: Students will be able to…

identify diverse types of prototypes

recognize the different stages of the engineering process

identify an engineering problem using common language, as well as formulate technical specifications for the development of an engineering prototype that is intended to solve the engineering problem.
design engineering prototypes using Arduino and 3D printing technologies.

engage in independent learning as part of the problem-solving process

effectively work in multidisciplinary teams
