IDP-X Info Event, 06.02.2020


Work creatively, agile and iteratively on an individual project in an interdisciplinary team for one semester. Anything is possible, as long as it is new, it is true and it does matter.

You will work together with designers, architects or rocket scientists and learn tangible methods for project management as well as for idea generation, prototypical implementation and human-centered evaluation.

The course is applicable for a practical research course (Forschungspraktikum, 11 ECTS) for Mechanical Engineering students.


We assign you to interdisciplinary teams (~ 5 students per group).
We provide the entire course with a leitmotif.


Three-day Design Thinking Sprint to find your team topic within said leitmotif, instructed by Design Thinking Coaches.


Elaboration of your topic for 14 weeks in an iterative, agile and creative way, supported by your mentor.
Learn and apply new tools and methods for idea generation, prototypical implementation and human-centered evaluation.
Improve your soft skills in communication, collaboration, interdisciplinary teamwork and conflict management.

Home stretch

Present and document your project work, results and experience with regard to the leitmotif.
