Project finished on 31.03.2021. 

Every year, the cx centre for interdisciplinary studies offers classes and interdisciplinary courses in theory and practical project work on a different topic. These offers are available to all AdBK students.


All courses are designed to reach across classes and departments and to closely tie together theory and practical project work.
