Global Collaborative Engineering


Produktentwicklung über Grenzen, Zeitzonen und Disziplinen (see also IDEEA)

Global Collaborative Engineering (GCE) is a joint course of different universities spread around the globe. This unique setup features joint virtual lectures and international team projects. The students will conceptualize new mechatronic and IoT-products while learning and deploying methods of design thinking and collaborative engineering.

Participants will study topics fundamental to interdisciplinary collaboration (engineering and design), product data management and intercultural challenges. These topics will be applied during a team project with team members located overseas, utilizing state-of-the art product life-cycle management (PLM) software technologies and interdisciplinary experts providing specific support and guidance.

Student attendance and participation during the scheduled time is expected: This is an active learning and team project based course that will require extensive live collaborations with team members!

Starting date: Feb. 21st 2024

End date: July 2024

To apply for participation, please send your documents (CV, letter of motivation etc.) to loewer(at)uni-wuppertal.de by February 14th, 2024!
