PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT is a course organized by Aalto University’s School of Engineering. The course is aimed at students having their background in engineering, design or economics and who are interested in the development of investment or consumer goods. The course is intended for the final stage of studies.
The project tasks and problems are given and sponsored by both domestic and foreign industrial companies, who are searching for innovative cooperation with the next generation of product developers. A typical project usually includes the phases from planning, searching for information, concept generation, decision making, and detailed computer aided design, ending up with the manufacture and assembly of a working prototype or suchlike. www.pdp.fi
