“These projects are not only the result of hard work from students and teachers, but also a manifestation of our vision.”

Welcome to Utexpo, an exciting fair where we at the University proudly showcase our talented students and their graduation projects! It is with great joy that we once again open the doors to a world of creativity, collaboration, and potential. In previous years, we have witnessed an impressive range of projects, from groundbreaking innovations like an ankle-foot orthosis with a circular lifecycle to a portable solution that improves sleep for ostomy users. These projects are not only the result of hard work from students and teachers, but also a manifestation of our vision to add value, drive innovation and develop society.

Utexpo offers a unique opportunity to see theory meet practice in real projects, often carried out in collaboration with companies and organisations. For our students, it is not just the end of their education but also a starting point for the future. For visitors, Utexpo is a chance to explore our students’ achievements and make valuable connections for future collaborations and recruitment.

We look forward to sharing this inspiring day with you!

This year's Utexpo alumnus Elin Olsson is an Innovation Engineer

As a child, I dreamt of becoming an inventor, a desire that was early on inscribed in the first “My Friends” books. The choice of becoming an innovation engineer was therefore natural for me. But what I did not foresee was the wonderful journey that my student life would be – a period that not only provided knowledge but also created valuable memories and lifelong friends.

Now, as you, the final-year students, stand on the brink of completion with Utexpo, I can recognise the anticipation for the future. In 2010, I exhibited my graduation project with a clear vision of saving lives through improved product design and functionality in smoke detectors. That marked the beginning of my next journey, which was to start my own company.

Today, as a Product Manager, I have the pleasure of transforming customer needs into tangible products, a role I have held across various industries since my graduation. The dream I had as a child has come true, largely thanks to the education I received at Halmstad University.
