Design Thinking & Engineering – Modern Skills
Time & Location
About The Event
In the modern workforce, sometimes it is not your specific abilities that are as important as your ability to think about a problem creatively and to work with a team of people. In this workshop we will cover the principles of design thinking and engineering. Be prepared to challenge your own thinking in solving hands-on problems to engineer solutions (there are no grades!).
