HPI D-School Virtual Open House on 27 January 2021

The HPI D-School will present itself at the Virtual Open House on 27 January 2021 in various online presentations and discussions. The event will focus on all questions concerning Design Thinking and the related academic and professional education programs at Hasso Plattner Institute.

HPI D-School Virtual Open House

Since summer semester 2020, the Corona pandemic has presented us with the challenge of moving our programs into virtual space. Thanks to our team's flexible Design Thinking mindset, we quickly developed and iterated prototypes for learning formats in the virtual space that create an interactive, and safe learning environment with numerous networking opportunities.

After we successfully hosted our first virtual Open House in June 2020, we now look forward to inviting you to the next edition on 27 January 2021. Once a semester, the Open House event at the HPI D-School offers the opportunity to learn and discuss about Design Thinking with prospective and current students, project partners and professionals, even in times of the pandemic.

Program and Schedule

The HPI D-School opens its virtual doors and gives you an authentic impression of our various academic Design Thinking programs. All prospective students have the chance to inform themselves about the application process and study contents.

Moreover, we invite professionals as well as companies and organizations to join us at the Virtual Open House. For them, we present the project partnerships with the HPI D-School and professional education programs of the HPI Academy.

In a virtual tour, we will show you the special learning environment in the rooms of the HPI D-School and introduce you to the equipment for our hybrid learning experience. Should the pandemic situation allow it, you can look forward to using the premises physically during the 2021 summer semester.

The Open House program offers not only information about Design Thinking and our programs but also gives you the chance to get into conversation. You can network with current students and ask individual questions to the HPI D-School team.

Registration and participation

The HPI D-School Virtual Open House will take place online on 27 January 2021 from 3 pm to 6 pm (CET). For the virtual event we use the platform Zoom.
