Innovation, Design and Production 1 (IDP1) requires a strong ability to translate theory and methods into unique solutions within the Revolve NTNU organization. IDP1 focuses on developing competence and improving reflection and learning through the Revolve NTNU participation. The course focuses on project planning, running Project, processes, reliability and maintenance analyses, problem identification, concept development and the identification of success criteria. The subject aims to strengthen students' ability to establish networks necessary to conduct development projects.
Through extensive practical application of theory, lectures and tutorials, IDP1 aims to give students a platform for running successful entrepreneurship and innovation.
The subject will give the students an optimal learning outcome in the Revolve NTNU by relating the Revolve NTNU project to their study specialization and relevant theory. A central topic is to focus upon Collaboration and conflict negotiations, and to give and receive feedback.
The student will learn how to manage the early-phase in a multi-disciplinary project team.
Know and use concept and production-processes and methods.
See and utilize technical solutions in different contexts.
Understand the connection between relevant theory and practical concept and production.
Identify, formulate and handle complex problems, and develop innovative and well thought out solutions on problems.
Communication with business and industry in a professional setting.
Gain an understanding in how it is to work towards a common goal in a high-tech multi- disciplinary engineering business.
Learning methods and activities
The teaching is based on individual tutoring, lecturing, group work and a compulsory project assigment. The course coordinator Follow up the compulsory activities.
- Preparation of a fall semester time schedule, including discussion and definition of critical phases and milestones for the project / responsibility area.
- Two tutorials during the semester, describing the student's progress compared to the established plan.
- Submission of a project report at the end of the semester, comprising:
- Problem definition.
- Work method, framework for cooperation With the team and follow-up.
- Relevant theory and knowledge gathering. Description of how the student has acquired necessary theory to his/her task in thew team.
- Description of the concept phase, and evaluation of the approach. Discussion of the decision basis, concepts and conclusion.
- Evaluation of the learning outcome and reflection on the project progress during the semester.
Seminars, excursions, and potentially other organized lecturing focusing on project work, innovation, product development, management and economy.
The course coordinator monitors planning and progress. Students are responsible for finding relevant literature within their specific area.
Further on evaluation
Mandatory work from previous semester can be accepted by the Department by re-take of an examination if there haven't been any significant changes later.
Exam registration requires that class registration is approved in the same semester. Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
