Final launch of the DPMIP course, Spring 2021

With a strong focus on industry collaboration, this project based course is a great way to put the learnings of Sandbox courses to work. Since this course recommends students to have completed Human Computer Interaction, it is designed to allow them to engage deeply with the material and apply design thinking practically. DPMIP offers students an opportunity to work with Sandbox’s partner companies on real-world problems and develop solutions for them.

The students will be tasked with producing high fidelity prototypes that could solve the problem statements provided. The companies provide important feedback, and coach the students along the course of the project. Companies like SEB, Bolt, Pipedrive, City of Tartu, Telia etc were partner companies in the previous offerings of the course.

This course is offered in both Autumn and Spring semesters.


Do I need to know how to code?
No. You will build high-fidelity prototypes with tools like Figma or Adobe XD during our practical courses, which do not require any coding skills on your part.

I want to be on a team with my friends. Can I choose my teammates?Generally speaking, no. Although we try to consider students' wishes, you should be fully prepared to work in any team and on any challenge. At the end of the day, we have to ensure equal division of the students into teams. Remember that working with new people will broaden your horizons and enhance your collaborative skills.

Can I choose the challenge?
Generally speaking, no. See the answer to the previous question. But don't worry, we make sure that all the industry challenges are feasible for the students.

Can I take DPMIP course more than once?
Yes. We have new industry partners and challenges each semester, so you can take the practical course more than once.

What should the final solution look like?
At the end of the practical course, each team presents a high-fidelity prototype of a final solution. To understand what solutions can look like, browse through our Completed Projects.
