Squads are groups in which students, scientific staff, and experts from the field, companies and organizations work together in a specific application domain. The application domains of the squads align with the core chairs in the department of Industrial Design. In each squad, staff members are gathered with specific expertise, enabling each squad to cover a specific set of expertise areas. Different staff members offer different approaches and design research preferences.
