|Course description: Course objectives:
The Global Product Realization (GPR) course is an academic virtual enterprise, consisting of five universities from Budapest, Lausanne, Ljubljana, London, Zagreb and one industrial partner. The human resources of the academic enterprise are the academic instructors, university students and company specialists. The enterprise is formed for one study semester. The primary goals of the enterprise are to gain the professional and communication knowledge and the solution of the practical problem, assigned by the partner company. The people involved in the EGPR course will be brought together by advanced communication means, where videoconferencing is considered as the key communication tool. The students will gradually gain knowledge by attending lectures, given by renowned professors and other experts and professionals. Student international teams will be formed to bring together their knowledge from different fields to try to solve the problems arising from the assignment. The teams will then elaborate and present their research work during common sessions. At the end of the semester, students will develop physical prototypes
Enrolment requirements and required entry competences for the course:
Passed exam "Product development".
Lecture attendance, participation in working process of international teams formed of students from 5 universities. Making of presentations and reports, participation in final workshop where product prototype is being produced.
Grading and evaluation of student work over the course of instruction and at a final exam:
During the semester students are working on project which has three review points. On each review point the students (teams) have to present results of their work in that particular project phase. They have to make an extensive report and deliver the presentation through videoconferencing equipment. On final workshop students are making the developed product prototype in cooperation with industrial partner. Every student team has one teacher which acts like a team "coach" continuously monitoring and advising the teamwork as a whole and the work of each student individually.
Methods of monitoring quality that ensure acquisition of exit competences:
Students activities are continuously monitored, surveys, the quality of developed prototype.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (learning outcomes):
communication in egnlish within teamwork in multicultural and multidisciplinary environment
active usage of asynchronous and synchronous communication tools
presentation abilities graphic and speech
organisation abilities by planning and managing a real project
experimental skills are being imporved by product prototype production
analysis of real problems together with industrial companies increases the number of different examples and problems for better mastering and understanding of basic engineering and natural sicence knowledge
social skills through training of dislocated individuals to work and learn together using videoconferencing equipment
searching and integrating of knowledge necessary for problem solving Also the student will be qualified:
to generate and select conceptual solutions of technical system and to make production documentation in the framework of dislocated teamwork and in cooperation with dislocated company.
