Workshop "Beyond Interdisciplinarity in Engineering and Social Sciences"


Beyond Interdisciplinarity in Engineering and Social Sciences

This workshop presents the motivation, examples and reflective exercises for doing collaborative research that involves engineering and social sciences. Thus, the workshop prepares the participants to see beyond traditional disciplinary boundaries, to face interdisciplinary collaborations and pursue a unique profile. Moreover, the planned activities enforce the students to put themselves in other shoes, a requirement that is needed for fruitful collaborations.

The Workshop is organized by Dr. Pablo Lanillos (Technische Universität München) and Dr. Andreas Bischof (Technische Universität Chemnitz).

The workshop has been prepared for engineering and social scientist doctoral students as well as master students that are about to finish. There are no prior knowledge requirements but an open mind to work with students from other disciplines.

When: 14 & 15 December (see schedule and description in the pdf)
