mtlogo.png is a special course in which students form a team to solve a chosen open-ended real life problem. Working alongside friends from different disciplines, the goal is to build some kind of novel object – preferably something useful, but possibly something that's just for fun! Along the way, participating students gain expertise in a variety of hands-on tasks, and learn to put their domain knowledge to practical use.

The course aims to provide students with opportunities to freely explore and take risks. Even if they fail, it will be a fruitful and enriching failure!
