As soon as the SKIL concept was created in 2018, it was possible to offer a 4 ECTS credit course during which students let their imagination run free and design their own project ideas.
Various prototyping, design or ideation courses take advantage of SKIL’s infrastructure to provide their students with access to a practical workshop. A non-exhaustive list is provided below.
The course brings together students from EPFL and UNIL through a participatory design approach. Students develop several prototypes within an interdisciplinary team and develop their solutions through user tests.
The course brings together EPFL students through a participatory design approach and reflective practice involving interdisciplinary collaboration. Students develop a prototype of an object, product, service or experience.
The course aims to introduce students to the basics of industrial design by confronting them with the creation of an object. This is a practical course based on the development of a semester project.
This course will cover all the aspects of product design and system engineering from learning relevant methods to the actual implementation in a hands-on practice of product development.
The aim of this course focuses on the description of the performance of composite materials for engineering applications.
