Course content

Experts in Teamwork is a course in which students apply their academic competence in interdisciplinary project work to learn cooperative skills that can be transferred to the workplace. Relevant issues from technology and society form the basis for the project work. The student teams may work together with external partners.

The student team must adapt the project that the team members choose, to suit their combined competence and the theme of the village. This village focuses on technological and societal issues of the use of hydrogen as fuel in transportation. The main objective of the village is to identify current limitations and suggest related solutions.

What are the technologies based on hydrogen for transportation? Are they efficient, safe, energetically and economically sustainable? What is the social and environmental impact of these emerging technologies? Multidisciplinary alliances need to be formed to harness diverse skills and technologies and deliver comprehensive answers to these questions. For further information, see and
