3/06/2020 - Participatory training module on sustainable electronics

Students of the international master’s degree “Micro and Nanotechnologies for Integrated Systems” of Grenoble -INP (UGA), Politechnico of Turin and EPFL of Lausanne, benefit from a brand new training module in English, during which they had to design a mobile phone incorporating micro-electronic components designed in the spirit of sustainable development (greenphone).

Students of the international master’s degree “Micro and Nanotechnologies for Integrated Systems” of Grenoble -INP (UGA), Politechnico of Turin and EPFL of Lausanne, benefit from a brand new training module in English, during which they had to design a mobile phone incorporating micro-electronic components designed in the spirit of sustainable development (greenphone).

This new educational approach was designed and led by experts from CEA, STMicroelectronics, Grenoble INP (UGA) and Grenoble Ecole de Management and prototyped within the framework of Nanoelec.

40 master students tested it on a day in January 2020. They worked in teams on the different stages of the product life cycle (materials, design, manufacture, use, end of life, etc.). At the end of the module, they presented a set of measures and procedures to meet environmental requirements. Result: a lot of creativity and the concrete demonstration that the issue of respect for the environment, by industry and technology, is crucial for young engineers who engage in the sector.
