Heterogeneity. The syllabus is built in a way that will help students that are not from typical design disciplines, where the beginning is dedicated for the completion of an update of the design world as a whole, and design thinking in particular. The work in the design labs as based on their major part on working in heterogeneous teams (as far as concerning the professional background) so that a lack in design fields is fulfilled in an advantage in other core areas.
