Productization Summer Education - Theoretical Background for New Product Development

Electronics Productization Research Group in collaboration with the Chair of Software Engineering will offer courses (20-25 ECTS, suitable for, e.g., a minor subject) on New Product Development (NPD) during the summer. The NPD entity is perfect for full-time summer students, since the courses require full-time attendance during the intensive lecture weeks and part-time attendance during the project case. The lectures will be held at the ICT-building in Turku.

The courses will be lectured if 15 or more students enroll to the courses. The courses are also limited by the number of students that can enroll. If elimination is needed, selection is made with the following criteria:

-    Number of credits and the estimated graduation year,
-    Student can add the courses to his/hers study plan, and
-    Student will participate in most of the offered courses.

If the selection can’t be made with these criteria, “first-come first-served” is used. The courses are suitable for both hardware and software oriented students. No previous knowledge is needed, but a general view of a student's own field of study is helpful.

Enroll before 3rd of May to Arho Suominen ( ) via email. Write “Summer courses” as the subject and give your student number, name, courses you want to attend, and a brief description of your studies (year of enrollment to the university, number of credits, estimated graduation time and major subject) in the message. If there are under 15 enrollments, the courses will be canceled.

PLEASE NOTE! If you have to cancel your participation to the courses, please send an email to Arho Suominen as soon as possible.

Please make sure from the student counselor or your major subject's professor how you can include the courses in your studies. Software engineering major students can include the courses into e.g. the V-module.
