New award trophies designed by MOME Designer-Maker students for the Centre for Energy Research

Date: 2023.07.15
The collaboration between the Centre for Energy Research (CER) and MOME gave an opportunity to Designer-Maker students to take on a real job with a real client for interdisciplinary design to design award trophies. From the ten concepts completed over the semester, the ones bought for further use were selected in June. The award trophies will be used to recognise the outstanding achievements of junior associates and commemorate the work anniversaries of members of staff with decades of history with the Centre.

In the first round, four of the ten students were selected by a jury made up of members of staff of the Centre for Energy Research and MOME. The second round on 20 June was only judged by CER, choosing an entry by Anna Alpár focusing on planet Earth and the relationship between sciences and highlighting optical games. Benjámin Kulin’s and Enéh Som’s works were also recognised and bought for the Centre.

The assignment given to the students was to condense intangible reality into tangible items during their coursework. As part of the induction workflow, the participants paid a visit to the research centre designed to help participants assess fields of energy research using design considerations. To design the award trophies, students were required to consider the strategic focuses of the research centre, such as nuclear fusion, nuclear energy, energy science, as well as space research, environmental science and functional material research. 

Founded 10 years ago, CER conducts world-class basic, applied and developmental scientific research in nuclear energy, functional materials and nano systems, environmental protection, energy saving and energy security. 

Designing the award trophies has been just the first step in the collaboration between the Centre and MOME, which will continue in the 2023/2024 semester.
