    country with different cultures and many possibilities How do you find D E curricula compared with your school I guess the main difference is how design and engineering points of view are combined I don t want to oversimplify but I d say my home uni is closer to German tradition and host uni to Scandination tradition I mean in UTBM we do engineering with some consideration to design when in D E you the concept idea seems to be The way we organized our projects and the tools we used were very different so it was great to learn another way to work with more freedom and to reach some results I wasn t expecting for Where you satisfied with your studies here What in particular did you find great here I really appreciated my semester in D E because the students have a lot of freedom Most of the time they re not forced but have the opportunity to do many things like some optional courses As a result the students enjoy it more and are motivated to learn the things they re interested in What was educationally most valuable for you from this semester I learned a lot during the conceptual design project I heard a lot about user centric design systemic project management etc but I never had the opportunity to apply it so deeply Also it was great to work with Janno Nõu Although he has designer background he s very realistic about technical and manufacturing points of view You seemed to be the embodiment of the saying work hard play hard D So how is Tallinn from the play hard perspective Yes when I wasn t working I tried to enjoy my Erasmus semester as much as possible and I really did I heard

    it s the most motivating course Also the first introduction project too when we practiced the teamwork 7 Is it different from your previous education experience What is different It s totally different First the teaching style Tutors are more interested in teaching us In bachelor level it was more like being on assembly line Also there are no limits for studying and all the time we have to think outside the box to come up with innovative solutions on every day 8 You are working on a project about sports equipment What has been most interesting in the project Visiting the gym first of all First lesson of the project course took place in Sparta Gym with Argo Ader Also it has been great to have a mentor who knows that much about physiology as Kristjan Port does 9 How do you find the group work It s interesting and important as well as difficult You have to work with different people and you got to know people that are good at different things You learn from each other I have learned most from the designers The designers are people whose way of thinking is vastly different they are really interesting thinkers Not sure what is the right word for it I d say they are colourful thinkers 10 What differences D E program has with your previous studies Teaching style is different Also the subjects vary We make a lot of projects that demand you think them through Here we have possibility to do something with our hands as well as possibility to work with people with other backgrounds 11 Are you satisfied with your studies what in particular you like here Actually I m very satisfied I was really more than positively surprised by this program Almost

    program The main point was that this course will give me a different profile from regular design education Also I had insights from people attending D E course 5 What is important for you in education in general I need to attend courses that are interesting enough for me to get my full attention I really want to dive into the work when I m doing it This also means I need fully passionate teachers who love what they do 6 What are your favourite courses so far I can t point out one particular the workshops with guest lecturers are intensive and in addition offer different point of views Also I like the mechanics courses simulations with Martin Eerme and materials class with Renno Veinthal 7 Is it different from your previous education experience What is different Well I have worked in groups before and also in international groups But our conceptual design group is the most diverse I have experienced so far In our group we have Madhes from India Alan from France and me and Larissa from Estonia and all of our educational backgrounds are different 8 You are working on a project about sports equipment What has been most interesting in this project For me the most interesting and valuable part is the research that we have done I think it s higher level than my previous school projects Hopefully the rest what we are building on top of that will be as good as the research 9 How do you find the group work I would say it s not linear it has its ups and downs Getting the right team is really important you can end up putting most of the energy into getting the teamwork going and have little time left to concentrate on the assignment But after a few projects you learn to manage it better 10 What differences D E program has in comparison your previous studies Main difference with HfG is in how the overall school system works also the quality of the teamwork Here team members work closer together and in the end the outcome is better Difference in school system is that here we have a curricula that we follow in HfG you choose 90 of your courses yourself In order to choose your combination wisely and smartly you have to know yourself already In HfG you have possibilities but no obligations Here you have more obligations that makes overall level higher but the system is less flexible 11 So are you satisfied with your studies I can say I m satisfied but there is room for improvement I like most of the lectures About the small important things to add the cafeterias are good in TUT especially the one in the library We don t have a huge class room but I still like the arrangement of our workspace We share the room and ideas but everybody has their own area too 12 If you could change

    complex So as designers we need to train to be able to cope with this type of complexity Adrian That is which we basically are trying to showcase in this workshop by presenting tools to do it practical approaches and methods Also we used this week to introduce you as the student group to these tools and show how GIGA mapping can enhance your project We make you try it out in this stressful context of one week and we try to make you want to use the tools too So there are actually many tools in your toolbox for super complexity Birger Yes the GIGA mapping is only one tool there are many We have other things like special ways of using scenarios etc So a lot of other people do similar things also mapping But I think we are doing it with a special flare and our aim is a little a different we are especially focusing to work with very large amounts of information and high complexity Adrian And also interdisciplinary contexts and the meetings with companies We are highly focussed on communicating with wide variety of audiences Also some of the tools gear towards meetings and researching in the context of a dialogue Birger Our attempt in mapping is really to understand different types of relations Goal is to become better and more discriminating in relations Relations are universal problem in all mappings Actually for me the biggest magic of the mapping was the collaboration process Birger Yes We have done a lot of mapping in collaboration with companies and organizations I worked for example with Norwegian Research Council which did mapping with Norwegian Design Council and also with a consultancy group PDG which is actually a management consultancy not a typical design client but they are very cool and interested in design Also in our master studios we work with a lot of partners like Ulstein shipyard that produces advanced offshore operation ship with Salto that makes quick charging stations for electric cars and with UDI the Norwegian immigration office and with Policy Lab on disarmament questions But back to the collaborative aspect We used it also as a management tool not as a design tool We did a timeline mapping with TPG company http www tpg no to help them to better understand their own processes People who have worked together for long time still have little different perspectives Timeline mapping helps people get their perspectives synchronized and helps them also find innovations in 2 hours workshop In TPG two hour workshop they found two innovations that they wanted to do differently There are very professional people who participate in lot of these type of workshops So we are very encouraged by this little steps forward Adrian Also the collaboration dialogue thing is very interesting I think this will be very clear to you after you have printed your maps and bring them to meetings I also suggest going back to the professionals you

    Mihkel Joost D E student in Engineering Carlota s lectures were very interesting to participate in they gave an understanding of how big technological changes or revolutions can radically transform the lifestyles of entire societies and become the norm until a new paradigm rises Seeing how the economy with its booms and bubbles is all interlinked with the advancements in technology gives a more holistic view of the systems we all live in An intense course lasted for two and half a weeks and included case study reviews group works and reading assignments One of the group works was to envision steps to improve Estonian innovation strategy D E students played the role of academics here you see the proposal Improving Estonian innovation strategy View more presentations from design engineering Carlota s lectures were a real hit Aap Piho D E student in Design suggests that everybody should attend in next autumn It is one of the best courses that I ve ever had in Uni Carlota Perez Carlota Perez is Professor of Technology and Development at the Technological University of Tallinn Research associate at Cambridge Finance and Visiting Scholar at Cambridge University and Honorary Professor at University of Sussex
