During the first module “Manufacturing and Factory Planning”, the subject of “Value Creation and Sustainable Manufacturing” was lectured as core knowledge in manufacturing.
In April 2014, the project concerning “Value Creation in Cycle Economies” was introduced to students as a practical assignment to apply all knowledge from the first module. The specified task is to create a wood gasifier for application in Vietnam.
Students were divided into groups of 5 or 6 students. To finish the project, each group had to study the market in Vietnam and then to come up with a solution for the design creation. The project attracted students with its practical application in Vietnam as well as the opportunity for the group with the best result to build a gasifier prototype at TU Berlin.
After two week working, the project of group 2 (with Dao Truong, Thanh Nguyen, Ngan Tran, Khanh Nguyen, Ninh Nguyen, and My Dang) was after evaluation announced as the one to build the prototype in Berlin from August 24th to September 18th.
