  • Product Design: Prepare to be wowed by the marriage of form and function. These ingenious creations reimagine everyday objects, blurring the lines between art and utility.

But RINTIS'24 is more than just showcasing creations. It's a platform for students to stand tall and say, "Here's what I've made!"

It's a chance to impress a "roundtable" of peers, professors, industry leaders, and potential collaborators. It's about celebrating the culmination of years of hard work, experimentation, and sleepless nights.
