Product, Processes and Automation


Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for participation in the module

This module is based on knowledge gained in the module Linear Algebra and the project module From the Classic to the Modern Production and Service.

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

While the focus of the previous project module was on the development of products and services as well as on the tools to support the innovation process, the purpose of this project module is to acquire knowledge, skills and competencies regarding the realization of these innovations.
