In the Advanced Energy Project course, students carry out energy related projects for external companies to solve an identified business problem through the development of services, business models, technical solutions or prototypes.
With know-how gained during studies, supported by teacher supervision and guidance, student groups take on challenges varying from market research and strategic planning to product design and development. Aalto University students have a way of challenging conventional ideas and coming up with new, innovative ways of doing things.
Study projects also provide a chance to get in touch with future experts, as well as gain visibility among the soon-to-be graduates, from the fields of science, art, technology and business.
The most feasible study project topics are typically smaller and well-defined tasks, such as various analyzes and surveys, as well as smaller brainstorming and development tasks.
