These days the human being is witnessing everyday developments in technology, products, services that people implement in their lives. 300 years after the invention of the wheel as a potter’s wheel, someone figured out to use it for transportation. To realise the need of users is very important for evolution.

In presented paper the authors’ team does not invent the methodology of design thinking - only apply it in wide range of courses in Computer Science, Information Technologies.

The University of Library Studies and Information Technologies is a principal investigator of the European Erasmus+ project Design Thinking for Digital Innovation 2016-1-BG01-KA203-023719. The main goal of the project is to be develop a course (curriculum, methodology, guidelines for implementation) in Design Thinking. Inspired this approach the project team discover the nugget education for vocational training in security. 2018-1-BG01-KA202-047919. Its main idea is to be created micro modules to support the hot topic training in cyber security.

The goal of the research team is to implement the Design Thinking process and to put in the shoes of the potential expert in security. It is a real challenge for the project. The first one is to identify business needs, i.e. the competencies which should be developed.

The reasonable implementation as a first step is the construction of the learning activities and to throw trainees in real business cases.

The natural sequel of the collective academic force is to create a list of modules, their curriculum and the guidelines for better understanding. The combination of the Design thinking process with Competence-based learning provide powerful synergy for vocational training
