In this project, you will identify unmet or underserved needs of low-income communities in developing countries. Students can visit a developing country (if they wish) to understand local context or they can examine available information on the Internet to explore unmet needs of marginalised communities in developing countries. Conceptual design, prototyping and analysis will be undertaken to satisfy the identified needs.

The project can be carried out in sectors such as food packaging, agricultural equipment, circular economy, and so on. It can be related to products, services or product service systems.

There are many other ideas for master thesis projects in this field. Students can also find and work on their own ideas in this area.
