This course is realized in close cooperation with universities from the SUGAR Network including Stanford University, University of St. Gallen, or the Trinity College Dublin.

The SUGAR program is inspired by the Design Thinking course ME310 at the Stanford University. It pulls together internal engineering and business students to work on real-life innovation challenges. Working together in small teams, the students realise breakthrough solutions in close cooperation with industry and the collaborating universities. Meanwhile the SUGAR program is offered by over 20 universities from around the globe forming the SUGAR Network. Established partner universities of the KIT from the SUGAR Program include Aalto University Helsinki, the Hasso-Plattner Institute in Potsdam, the Trinity College in Dublin and the University of St. Gallen.
