Product Development Project

Product Development Project (PdP) is a program in partnership with Aalto University and Aalto Design Factory, primarily aimed at bachelor and/or master students of engineering, industrial design, and business and at companies that are interested in development of investment products or consumer goods.

However, the course is open for other students and there have been participants from various fields of studies e.g. cognitive science, anthropology, and biology.

Most of the problems are given and sponsored by manufacturing companies, who are searching for innovative cooperation with the next generation of product developers. At start, much attention is directed to the forming of highly motivated interdisciplinary teams. A project typically includes phases of planning, searching for information, creation of concepts, decision making and detailed computer aided development. The project phases of manufacture, assembly, and testing are strongly related to the most valuable learning experiences.
