Although students and graduates today acquire quality knowledge from their fields of study, they have less knowledge and skills in using it when facing complex problems. One of the reasons is that complex problems do not fit the patterns students learned, another is that complex problems most often require knowledge from various disciplines. Therefore non-linear, systematic, and interdisciplinary approach is required, which represents the basis of Solution design. The problem topic of the course is focused on the value of waste, whereby waste includes anything from garbage to thoughts... and beyond!
