Welcome at the website of the Fontys Minor From Idea to Product with 3D printing. Here you will find all the information about the minor. Besides that we designed this website to give you an insight of the development of the minor, the team and some great impressions.
A new approach in learning and teaching with lots of interaction, debate and discussion using Design Thinking and Lean Thinking while working on real life global challenges supported by companies, universities and science and technology organizations.
We aim on delivering a more complete professional for the future by developing attitude and aptitude by focusing on talent development. Students become more creative ones you let go of the formal boundaries of traditional education.
Each student brings in his or her strengths, weaknesses and learning goals. They grasp the opportunity to learn from each other (peer to peer learning) and dive into disciplines totally new for them. Giving the students full control of their own learning path and goals results in more commitment, responsibility, awareness, reflection and better solutions adding value to humanity.
The variety of subjects, group dynamics, collaboration, competition and co-creation opportunities gives the students a broad spectrum and reality check of what is demanded from the future professional. Ones they know how to spot opportunities they will be nimble and agile enough to adapt towards success.
