What is TIC?

TIC is a course for year-3 Bachelor students, Master students and lifelong learners from all disciplines and backgrounds. The course will promote interdisciplinary and cross-level collaboration while solving a real-world problem.

The course allows you to experience how your knowledge and specific skills can be used in the search and implementation of solutions for pressing social issues. Substantive background knowledge is not required.
