Summer Programs

Corporate Programs

Corporate Programs are career orientation programs based on the principles of experiential learning where participants learn through observation and interaction with executives of an organization or a company.

The programs last four weeks and are divided into two phases. In the first phase, students are introduced to the basic principles of operation of a company while in the second phase they acquire experiential experience on its premises on a daily basis, participating in meetings and dialogues with executives and thus familiarizing themselves with the subject.

Students are asked to think and combine digital manufacturing technology (3D design and 3D printing) and robotics with the Internet of Things (IoT) to create their future. The workshop is based on Robotixlab's out-of-the-box-learning method, where knowledge is experientially conceived through design, experimentation and testing in a repetitive design cycle of optimal solution approach. The program is designed and implemented by Antonios Kounouras, engineer and founder of Robotixlab.

The program includes:

  • Collaboration and teamwork
  • Developing ideas and solutions
  • Programming robots and microprocessors with sensors, electric motors, LED etc.
