MBA XI edition classes – discovering FabLab at GUT

On March 6, 2020 the XI cohort of MBA visited 3D laboratory of the Faculty of Architecture GUT where experienced real design thinking processes.

Students with their lecturer Alain Hereux as part of the 3-days classes of Creativity, Innovations & Entrepreneurship had a classes in the 3D laboratory of the Faculty of Architecture GUT known as FabLab. The FabLab has been operating since 2013. It allows to prepare elements of mockups and entire three-dimensional models, using devices such as e.g. CNC milling machine (for cutting various materials); an industrial multi-axis robot. It facilitates creation of the most sophisticated large-scale projects in a wide spectrum of materials.

Participating to an MBA is about a personal assessment of your competences, it’s also about connecting with new people but it’s also about discovering new tools and methodologies.  During the Module dealing with Creativity and Innovation we decided to include the visit of the FabLab from the University of Technology (Faculty of Architecture).  

The concept of a FabLab, as designed by Professor Neil Gershenfeld from the MIT in Boston, is there to trigger our curiosity and creativity.  FabLabs are present in universities and schools but also in public places or in corporate organisations.  

Jan Cudzik, managing the FabLab in Gdansk, challenged the MBA students to prototype their idea as part of the design thinking process we are using to turn an idea into a business project.  During 3 intensive days we let students experience design thinking but we let them also work with the business model canvas and with Pimentomap using agile methodologies to develop their own start-up.   – tells lecturer Alain Heureux.
