Captain Corrosion Demo Lab provides with hands-on experience in the field of science and engineering through deep-tech incubation and workshops.
The deep-tech incubation program at its core is product development, which is carried out by students under the supervision of experienced mentors, who are experts in the field. Established companies can use this program to train product development specialists, who will bring the obtained practical experience and problem solving mentality to the company. Start-up companies on the other hand can use our hardware and mentors to create an advanced product prototype, which is ready to go to the market or to attract investors for scaling up the business.
SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING WORKSHOPS
SCIENCE WORKSHOPS provide students with first experience in using state of the art characterization techniques to solve practical problems from daily life. Short courses are aimed at high school students in order to help them choose a suitable field to study at the university in order to pursue a career either in science or industry. Extended courses are aimed at university students, who want to get a deeper understanding of a technique that they need in their research.
ENGINEERING WORKSHOPS give students practical hands-on experience in carrying out advanced industrial processes. The goal of short courses is to connect high school students with future employers, which helps the students to choose a field to study at the university that is interesting for them as well as most suitable for their future employers. Extended courses are aimed at the employees of industrial partners as well as individuals, who want to master a technique for commercial applications.
LIST OF WORKSHOPS
