First semester 

In the first semester you will be indroduced to the entire product development process. At the same time you will strengthen your engineering skills in math, knowledge about materials, construction and CAD drawing. You will also learn about subjects such as business know-how, market analysis and product planning. You and your project group will be trained to develop (innovate) a product to be improved in the areas of both engineering and business. 

Second semester
In this semester you will work with creativity and idea development. Through real projects you will continue working on innovation and prototypes. You and your project group will define a problem and work towards a potential solution. Using a mug up/prototype you will demonstrate how the solution makes sense both in terms of engineering and business.

Third semester
In this semester you will learn how to bring a concept on to a more detailed stage of design. There will be focus on how to develop and document mechanical design, industrial design, development of prototypes and market analysis.

Fourth semester
During the fourth semester you will go into more detail in different aspects of product development, product planning and global networks. Through project work you will be trained in making a mechanical design that is practical, easy and cheap to produce.

Fifth semester
In the fifth semester there are good opportunities for spending a semester in a university abroad. The Faculty of Engineering has a wide selection of partners - both within and outwith Europe. If you choose to stay in Denmark you will be trained in entrepreneurship and innovation. You will work with students from other disciplines in solving real problems for a company.
