Composite Hack 2018 Gala Seminar 14.2.

Composite Hack is an event where industry and education collaborate with common tasks. The idea is that student teams visit companies and form solutions for tasks defined by the industry.

The student teams are interdisciplinary so that different fields of knowledge can be combined to form new point of views and fresh ideas. This year students are gathered from two courses, Composites course (MOL-42226) from Tampere University of Technology and Product Development, Sales, Marketing course (5K00BI01-3003) from Tampere Applied Sciences University. Each team is assigned to a company and they make a visit to the company. Based on the assignment, the teams form a solution, Gala presentation, and final report during an intensive hack period. In the Gala seminar, the concepts of students solutions are presented and networking as well as visibility given both companies and the entire composite field.

The Gala Seminar on Wednesday 14.2. at 12-15 in kampusareena Auditorium is free of charge and open to everyone. Welcome!
