There was a tense and expectant atmosphere in the air when Halmstad University finally opened its doors to Utexpo. After several months of hard work, it was finally time for the students to demonstrate their graduation projects and take their long-awaited graduation. At the exhibition, which was the 30th since it started, over 100 different projects were presented from 16 different programmes.
New this year was the Student Union's job fair, held in conjunction with Utexpo, during one of the three day of Utexpo. In the University's Sports Centre, both students and entrepreneurs mingled with each other hoping to make contacts for the future.
"It should also be possible to get information e.g. on weaponry on the visor, or a map so you can see where the others in the platoon are," says Oskar Varland and says that the helmet is adaptable to different tasks. If, for example, you need to be fully protected, there is an associated chin guard available to fit.
After Oscar Varland graduates, new challenges await in his new job as a designer at a consulting firm. "It was my first day yesterday, so now I have my hands full," he says.
"You just take-out the inner bag, where the clothes are, which creates a pure golf-bag. Then, all you have to do is make your way to the golf course," says Jennifer Hoffmann.
Both think it's been fun to do something creative in their final degree project and not just sitting in front of a computer.
"We have spent much time in the workshop, sewing and building the prototype," says Lizette Lindell and says that they have already received some orders. Now we just have to find a manufacturer for the golf bag.
The fact that they have all studied various programmes has been a great asset in their work.
"It's been a very instructive collaboration," says Sofie Sabo who has made sure that the product has been developed in an ergonomic way. "The project has become much broader because we have knowledge from different areas."
After graduation, they will apply for a patent for their ideas; so therefore, do not want to reveal too much about the project.
"We hope our products can generate jobs in the future and that many will use our walking frames," says Fredrik Nilsson.
The Exhibition continued for three days. During the last day several grants from Sten Fåhrés fund were awarded to students from the Innovation Engineering Programme.
