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.

Inhaltliche Beschreibung des Moduls

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.

Lehr- und Lernformen

The students work on documentation of the project results, research state of the art technology, use problem-solving methods etc.

The overall grade is based on the project results, project report, presentation, and possibly other parts (at the discretion of the individual lecturer).
