We describe a project within the Design-Build-Test course where a student group, based on research, implemented help functions on a power wheelchair. The Design-Build-Test course at Umeå University comprises both an industrial relevant student projects and non-technical exercises like project management, teamwork (team dynamics) and communication. The goal is to create a learning environment where students from different study program work together in projects, resembling the conditions for projects in the industry. We believe that this approach will promote valuable skills in the field of product and system development which are important for the students’ future role as engineers.
