DESIGN FACTORY

PASSION FOR DOING

Design Factory is an interdisciplinary product and service design and learning platform uniting students, teachers, researchers, and industry. Our goal is to build passion-based learning culture at HAMK.

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 currently being build 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.

STUDIES

Summer 2019 studies organized in Design Factory at Hämeenlinna include:

 

Design Factory is a product and service development platform, where students learn by doing industry projects. Design Factory highlights the importance of the journey together, not just the end results. Therefore, this requires regular interaction both from students and companies to learn from the journey and achieve the best possible learning result.

The first company projects are done in summer 2019. The fall and year 2020 projects are under planning. Design Factory official opening event will take place in 29th August starting from 9:00 AM in Hämeenlinna University Centre.

As product and service design platform Design Factory brings HAMKs research units’ expertise and laboratory equipment to support research and development activities in companies. In Hämeenlinna University Cent 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.

Co-creating #DesignFactory magic @AaltoDF @hamkdf

Good example of co-creation pedagogy at #DesignFactory. Business, teachers and students participate actively in design.

Authentic learning environment for #SmartDesign

Exciting times at @HAMK_UAS. HAMK Design Factory (HDF) and Fabrication Laboratory (Fab Lab) are being co-created in parallel to provide opportunities for passion-based learning, and to better serve the needs of local and global ecosystem.

Fabrication Laboratory eli Fab Lab tarkoittaa tuotantolaboratoriota, joka ei kuitenkaan keskity tuotannon määrälliseen optimointiin vaan kokeiluihin ja innovaatioihin, kertoo @AijaLundahl artikkelissaan. #HAMKUnlimited #tuotekehitys #tuotteistaminen https://t.co/WN3mN70b8A

In troubleshooting several eyeballs are better than one 👀 #SmartDesign

Electronics Workshop now operational. Soldering equipment tested. We are ready for #SmartDesign today 🔌
