The basic goal is to enable students to experience many problems that will be present in the production facilities where they will soon be operating. At the same time, the LF also provides engineers from local companies with the opportunity to get acquainted with new technologies that were not present at the time they were studying.
In order to encourage entrepreneurial skills and attitudes, we plan to develop projects with local companies, where the real needs of the market will be felt. 
Conditions have been established to help and support local businesses in the areas of 3D printing, reverse engineering, and metrology.

Students, assistants, and engineers from local companies are introduced to 3D printing, 3D scanners and 3D scanning through practical examples. Also, they can actively participate in the development and adjustment of materials for the implementation of training and laboratory exercises, as well as in the organization of training, laboratory exercises and exercises on real examples. The practical work of printing and scanning objects is done in the premises of the Learning Factory (for local companies Škutor, SIK, Ma-com, Weltplast) with students, assistants , profesors and company engineers.
The Learning Factory offers a high potential for a blended learning setup, where the LF serves as a meeting place and application scenario. 
The technology of rapid prototyping with 3D printing in combination with a 3D scanner and appropriate software using reverse engineering can significantly speed up the path to the finished product, which is extremely important for relevant companies.


After Entrepreneurial training in Graz we noticed the importance of creativity and innovation and for this purpose we organized these workshops for other faculties at the University of Mostar.

The workshop was held in 3 parts:
• for students at Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Computing and Electrical Engineering
• for architecture students
• for art students
