PASSION FOR DOING

As product and service design platform Design Factory brings HAMKs education facilities and equipment as well as research units’ expertise to industry use. In Hämeenlinna the product development laboratory of Degree Program in Design offers design expertise and services for 3D-scanning, modeling and printing (clay&plastic), digital paper and textile printing as well as laser cutting.
Design Factory spaces are located in Hämeenlinna University Centre E-building.
Welcome to a new kind of learning environment!
In Design Factory the work takes place in interdisciplinary teams making use of and strengthening each students’ own area of expertise. The idea of Design Factory is to enable learning by doing in authentic industry projects.
The participating organizations are involved in the projects during the whole journey, not just at the beginning and end of the project. In essence, the journey together is more important than just the end results. Thus, in Design Factory projects the interaction between company and inside interdisciplinary teams is emphasized.
