This work aimed the increase in interdisciplinarity and in engineering inclusion using algorithms during undergraduate disciplines and/or scientific initiation. Methodology follows a case study, focuses two of the largest educational institutions in Brazil and comprises four Teams, named as Team USP, Team FATEC SP, Team FATEC FR e Team FATEC ZL. At the end of a two years period, the work has involved 4 course instructors and 17 undergraduate students. The main achievements were: high involvement among the four Team people; high diversity with multidisciplinary Teams being spontaneously formed and students approaching subjects that do not belong to their major area, such as, business school students developing a meteorological station. Thus, the use of an innovative algorithm as a basis for the development of extra-class work and/or scientific initiation is an appropriate stage for increasing interdisciplinarity.
