New Skills in International Distributed Energy Workshop

Posted on 2015-03-25 08:55:20 EET. On Monday the 9th of March a group of International Business and Mechanical Engineering students gathered to the festival hall on Raastuvankatu Campus to begin their workshop week together.

The aim of the Workshop in International Projects - Distributed Energy was to learn to work in an international group with students from different fields.

The introduction of the week and the division into groups had happened a couple weeks before.

The task was to export Nordautomations product Ekohell to one of each group member’s home country. This task included the customer segmentation, doing the pestle analysis, choose a good entry strategy, and to discuss cultural differences etc.

We [VAMK] were happy to have guest lecturers during the whole week.

WAMK had Director Dolores Sanchez-Bengoa from Spain, Professor Hans Hans-Rudiger Kaufmann from Nicosia University in Cyprus, and as company representatives Vice President Jan Tapanainen from PrimaPower and Project Manager Petri Polvilampi from Wärtsilä.
