InGenious - Cross Disciplinary Project - 799G52

In progress



During the course, the students work in teams that are expected to independently develop a cross disciplinary project that meets a challenge posed by an external client. The work is interdisciplinary and the framework of the challenges leaves room for interpretation, this requires that the students are inquisitive and show initiative.

This project is part of a cross-disciplinary course at Linköping University and gives 8 ECTS. It is a part-time course (25 %), lasts for one semester and includes about 215 hours of work. After completing the course, a diploma will be awarded.
