In the Extreme PSS Innovation course, students from BTH’s masters programmes in Mechanical Engineering, Industrial Management and Engineering, and Sustainable Product-Service System Innovation (MSPI) are given challenges from real industrial companies to solve. The course is a central part of BTH’s mantra “In Real Life”.
Using their achieved engineering skills to solve real challenges from real industrial companies is an important and inspiring challenge for the almost ready engineering students and a central part of the “In Real Life” mantra that BTH students practice. This years’ breed of Innovative product development students from three different programs have come together to address challenges from six different partner organizations.
To boost the students’ creative confidence and to familiarise them with Design Thinking they were tasked with a boot camp that is essentially a scaled down version of the development process.
The students in the PSS Extreme Innovation course develops sustainable PSS innovations, in close collaboration with industry and society.
The aim of the course is that students will get good insights and skills in how both technical and social innovations are created.
