What is this course about?
It is a hands-on course to solve a real challenge from the industry using additive manufacturing technologies! You will be able to work hand by hand with HP’s industry experts and learn how to design and develop for 3D printing production while using cutting edge techniques to manage teams, projects and processes to deliver fast robust solutions to the market. Not only that, but you will also be able to practice how to guide teams into the unknown through the process of experimentation, understanding user needs, generating innovative solutions & reducing the risks of launching new ideas through Minimum Viable Products.
What will I do during the course?
You will meet people with very different cultures, improve your English, learn how to work in a project with your team in a professional environment. The main objective will be to solve a problem given by the company that will end up being 3D printed. At the end of the course, you will have a final evaluation. Outside the academic hours, you will have many social activities with the other participants, in the hostel and in Barcelona.
