IQS Barcelona – ITQ Munich – Multidisciplinary Engineering Teams Innovate with SOLIDWORKS Motion

IQS - IQT Mi5 Project

Students from IQS, Barcelona, Spain, together with students from other Universities have been working since summer 2014 on the multidisciplinary Project Mi5.   Project Mi5.  the initiative of Dr. Stetter, ITQ. Munich, Germany, brings together world class engineering students.  Mi5 stands for 5 “I’s”: Innovative, Interdisciplinary, International, Iterative and Incremental. The aim of the project is to develop a showcase of an industrial process to be shown on an international fair.

Mi5 Project Hanover Fair

Last year, IQS students Jordi Mas and Bernat Cortés and students from ITQ-Germany began to  develop an integrated team working with SOLIDWORKS Motion to show the possibilities to program an XTS chain for the creation of a module that made biscuits/cookies with several options of fillings on demand at the fair.  Insert this link into your browser to see motion (  All modules were shown at Hannover Trade Fair

Currently IQS Master students Marc Vives and  Alex Alsina and 3rd level student Cristina Mas are working on several proposals of new modules to integrate with other teams. Such proposals are placed on the website developed by students:
