Campus Odense
Duration 2 weeks
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 1160 EUR
Tuition per term (EU/EAA/CH) 570 EUR
Blended*:   the course is offered both online and on campus. If physical presence is not possible, the  course will still run online.

This course focuses on composite drone production.

Drones come in various forms and shapes. The purpose of flying requires smart constructions and lightweight materials, such as composites. The composite lab at the Danish drone center offers various composite manufacturing technologies and materials to build different types of drones. The range of processes spans from additive manufacturing with composite materials over to filament winding and vacuum infusion. Natural fibers, like flax, offer sustainable composites but also glass and carbon fibers could lead to flying solutions.

The aim of the course is to develop and manufacture your individual composite drone in each team. The teams will get guidance along the way and having the freedom to develop their ideas and manufacture their individual designs.

Steep learning of applied composite processes
Hands on work with fiber materials and resins in a responsible way and attitude
Manufacture construction systems with 3D printing
Fabricate and build full scale prototypes

Mandatory prerequisites: Students with at least two completed academic years in the field of Engineering or Design, interested or curious about applied composite manufacturing and drones.

Admission/Tuition: NOTE: Exchange students from a partner university pay no tuition. Guest students pay tuition fees. Please read more:
