Presented evidence of experience and learned skills e.g. in work life. Packaging design students: Similar product development assignment in LAB projects or company collaboration. Requires a report including hours used, and a certificate of participation from the company or the project manager.
If possible the main task is a co-operation project. Packaging design students: If possible, the product development project is conducted as a co-operation with a company.
The schedule is in the course's Moodle environment. Obligatory presence on the first day, lectures and presentations. Commitment to the group work is essential. There is no need for additional tasks when absent but tasks have to do within given time. Packaging design students: Own long schedule during the fall semester Kick off and the preliminary task is mandatory Mid and final presentations are mandatory (force major case like illness leads to an extra task) 80% attendance mandatory in contact days. Part of the group work days can be done as distance work but requires agreement and reporting to the group and the teacher.
Mukkulankatu campus and Moodle learning environment. Packaging design students: Mukkulankatu campus project workspaces, Pc-room A260, workshops, co-working premises and Moodle learning environment. Possibly an excursion to a company. Evening workshop spaces can be booked for the groups if needed.
Tasks 65 %, lectures 10 %, literature ja learning tasks 10 %, presentations and discussions 15 %.

During the course we will find out the elements of graphic design product development processes and how to do it target orientated. The main task is to develop a product using graphic design methods and processes. Packaging design students: The course includes a multidisciplinary product development case, or a packaging field product development case that is related to LAB projects, company collaboration, or similar. The case assignment includes a data collection and research part, concept design, and visualization of the chosen ideas based on the brief. The assignment is a group task. The project outcome includes a representative report. The student gets a preliminary task in the field of study before the course starts. Student deepens the group work skills, a dialogue in a group, dividing the project tasks between the group members, scheduling, project planning and project management.
