Pre-departure information

New in Sweden

If so, this project course is perfect for you. You work in a team with students from other disciplines and universities, with the goal to develop innovative ideas that meet sustainability challenges in e.g. environment and healthcare.

The course, which is based at Openlab, is a collaboration between SU, KI, KTH and Södertörn University. The challenges are formulated in dialogue with our partners the City of Stockholm and the Stockholm Region.

By using design thinking as a model for solving complex problems, you learn methods for problem identification, idea generation, prototyping and problem solving. You are trained in the organisation of teamwork, and oral and visual presentation of ideas and solutions.

In different workshops you learn the different phases of the design thinking model. The course ends with a project delivery for the team's challenge giver.

  • Schedule

    The schedule will be available no later than one month before the start of the course. We do not recommend print-outs as changes can occur. At the start of the course, your department will advise where you can find your schedule during the course.

  • Course literature

    Note that the course literature can be changed up to two months before the start of the course.

    For course literature, please refer to Openlab Master Course website 

    The course is based on a problem and it is therefore also included in the learning activities that you yourself actively seek information and appropriate literature to solve the assignments.
