Although you will first start working in group and out of your comfort zone on true study case during which you will explore various tools, meet engineering & operational teams of the department as well as presenting your work on each sprint (every 3d).

Starting from there, you will develop prototype based primary objective that you will shape along your work with your own ideas. Merging standard spreadsheet, design and drawing tool will force you to train yourself and other to this new way of thinking and allow you to test your work on live projects.
