An exploratory team trip

 

This initiative of 5 to 6 months is carried out each year in conjunction with partner companies.
The company submits a specific business problem to final year students from different specializations who, in return, have to deliver a functional prototype at the end of the course.
The programme ends with a "Demo Day" bringing together a hundred participants each year.
