Mapping to Focus Areas
Below, you find the module's mapping to the study program's focus areas. This is done as a contribution to all relevant focus areas (in ECTS, and content-wise). This is also relevant for setting the module in relation to other modules, and tells to what extent the module might be part of other study programs.
||Module Contribution to Focus Area
|Generating and Accessing Knowledge
In the combination of focus areas, this Guided Project will usually contain some element of knowledge generation and analysis.
|Architecting and Coding Software
When bringing focus areas together, there is some amount of software programming or scripting involved.
This type of Guided Project will deal with exploring a (business) domain and creating a dedicated business/domain support solution, based on this exploration.
The students learn to work in an interdisciplinary context, which requires a high amount of empathy and reflection.
|Designing Innovations and Products
Goal of such a Guided Project is usually the design and creation of some kind of service or product, as an answer to an interdisciplinary challenge.
|Managing and Running IT
This kind of Guided Project will consider the solution support by IT as a longterm and sustainable base for success.
Students will learn to work on a complex project in a team setting.
By implementing the project, the students will learn …
- problem-solving skills,
- self-management skills,
- teamwork skills, and
- the ability for independent scientific work.
- methods and knowledge about the subject matter, by focus on practical experience.
This way, the students will be able to perform, plan, and lead similar projects in a professional context.
Supervised work of a complex task in a research and development project (possibly in cooperation with external
partners) in a team. The Lecturer defines the objectives of the project, and conducts a regular discussion
on the progress, by means of intermediate meetings between Lecturer and team in intervals of not more than three weeks.
In addition, the Lecturer agrees at least two project milestones with the team. The milestone results will
contribute in an adequate manner to the final grade. The Lecturer further agrees the form of communication and
cooperation with the team, and reflects it in regular intervals with them. The projects are systematically supervised.
Accompanying these components, the student research the relevant literature independently.
Forms of Teaching and Learning
The students work on documentation of the project results, research state of the art technology, use problem-solving
The overall grade is based on the project results, project report, presentation, and possibly other parts (at
the discretion of the individual lecturer).
