Taking the question of envisioning a pioneering university quite literally, I would say that it should be shaped like a mesh instead of the traditional branch division of knowledge. The way to implement it would be to give the students the freedom to attend a variety of courses of their interest during their stay, rather than solely focusing on specialization within a single discipline. There should also be physical and virtual spaces that promote interaction between departments, such as open-plan collaborative areas, shared studios, innovation hubs, online collaboration tools, virtual reality environments and social networking platforms. Furthermore, these new collaborative groups should work together with industry and community organizations, addressing complex societal issues to develop solutions that are ethically responsible and culturally sensitive.
