Product development in practice, in interdisciplinary teams

Throughout the study program, students apply their knowledge to projects, often specified by industry. Students develop subject-specific, methodological and interpersonal skills through real-life projects. During the first year of study, interdisciplinary groups work on specific tasks to experience the different phases of projects. They gather basic knowledge of time management and project planning, go through the problem-solving-cycle, assess their findings and document the results according to the various target audiences. Before starting individual projects in the final year of study – including their Bachelor’s Thesis – students from various disciplines have the task of developing a smart product together. While specifications change every year, one example was to develop a portable automated solar tracker. The product, “a charger for electronic devices such as mobile phones”, needed to be designed for maximum user-friendliness for both, charging and powering mode. To maximize the net power gain during a given period, a PV panel had to follow the sun by moving on a one or two axis tracking system with minimum electricity usage for the motors. A two-week competition amongst 13 solar trackers for maximum measured performance in terms of net electricity production marked the end of the project. The winning prototype, “Solanthus”, with its appealing design is waterproof and wind resistant. It is able to charge at least two mobile phones and is therefore perfectly suited for camping.

“This program is particularly valuable to me, due to its interdisciplinary and practical approach in applying the Material, Energy and Business Sciences in combination through project oriented curricula.” Energy Systems Engineering student, Robert Beaufait from the USA about his motvation to come to Switzerland. 10
