Prototype your PhD


The workshop 'Prototype your PhD' will teach you how to create actual models to illustrate the aim of your research project. And this is possible in all research fields, irrespective of how theoretical they may be, with the help of the rapid prototyping approach.

Participants will learn how to use the fascinating creative techniques derived from design thinking and to present what they produce succinctly and convincingly using the storyteller method. The workshop, which will be held in English, is directed at doctoral candidates.

How you will benefit:

  • Rapid Prototyping: Learn new methods to build haptic prototypes of your research, even when you think it is "too theoretical" to prototype.
  • Design Thinking: Get to know new creativity techniques for your daily work in the inspiring environment of UnternehmerTUM and the high-tech workshop "MakerSpace".
  • Storytelling: Use the narrative thinking method for communicating your "story" convincingly
