This successful course, held for the first time last year, will in 2017 be held partially at the Haute école d’ingénierie et d’architecture de Fribourg’s iPrint institute in order to give participants more hands-on experience. Students will also participate in a group case study and have plenty of access to experts in the field during the course.
Monday, 4 September to Wednesday, 6 September 2017.
Discovery Learning Lab (DLL), EPFL; iPrint, Fribourg.
