New teaching concepts: ETH Week

A week of study dedicated to global challenges

A pressing social challenge, one week and 200 ETH students: The ETH Week aims to promote interdisciplinary exchange among students, (self-)critical thinking and independent action, in addition to technical and scientific expertise.

Numerous Bachelor’s and Master’s students from all departments as well as a number of professors are involved for a week with solving a global challenge such as „Manufacturing the Future“ (2017), „Energy Matters“ (2018) or „Rethinking Mobility“ (2019).

In interdisciplinary teams, the students first learn about the topic area before defining a problem themselves and using Design Thinking to develop a sustainable, future-oriented solution under narrow time constraints.
