In the minor Bionica/Biomimetics, the students learn how to apply the BIM to technical problems, tackling the problem in a stepwise manner, using innovations and structures from Nature as a basis. The minor combines a variety of teaching methods in sub-modules that each contribute to aspects that aid to develop the students into specialists in Bionica/ Biomimetics.
Learn to develop technical/technological solutions to the proof-of-concept level, guided by the Bionica/Biomimetics Innovation Method (BIM) and thereby inspired by parallel solutions from Nature.
Max. 32 students.
