How do interdisciplinary teams work together and solve wicked problems?
At the Center for Integrated Design at UT Austin, we teach design methodologies as a foundational skill to enable interdisciplinary students to creatively collaborative on real-world challenges. Our classes are open to any major, and students learn to integrate design practices into their own disciplines by focusing on new mindsets, and tools to solve difficult and messy problems that are relevant to our campus.
