Sustainable Product and Service Design theory (MUO-E8020) course is one of the core courses in Creative Sustainability. It is a mandatory course for all the Master’s degree students in the CS Programme and optional for CS minor students. This course from the department of Design prepares the students for the CAPSTONE in Creative Sustainability project course, provided by Aalto University School of Business

This year, Sustainable Product and Service Design was structured around guest lecturers and short individual and group assignments. Each lecturer brought up a topic, which was discussed and worked on in the class. Learning and discussions were supported with a selected list of readings on the topics.

“Through the short and quick assignments, the students learn to prioritize and produce convincing results within the given timeframe” Laura Puikkonen, CS student

CS student Laura Puikkonen describes the content of the course as relevant, but above all she highlights the teamwork skills that were practiced in the course. While short group assignments with changing themes and limited time can be challenging, they are also very good practices to refine teamwork skills. “Through the short and quick assignments, the students learn to prioritize and produce convincing results within the given timeframe”, Laura reflects.
