Aberdeen CityLab is a course run for twenty students in level three and level four from both the University of Aberdeen, and Robert Gordon University in collaboration with Aberdeen City Council. CityLab provides an opportunity for students to play an active role in improving the city. The human centred approach, which the programme uses helps students appreciate alternative points of view as members of cross-disciplinary teams from the two universities. Students seek to find creative and innovative ways to develop projects, which can be sustainably continued after the course ends. As well as learning about team-building and project management, there are many useful personal gains. Students learn formal and informal presentation skills, and create opportunities for networking and establishing connections with professionals, who can help teams move their project ideas forward.
