prerequisites and co-requisites
Academic Writing, Project Management
Practically relevant tasks, preferably based on tasks from industry partners or public institutions are processed in groups or students gain field experience under guidance from course management in order to be optimally prepared for problems in work life. Students contribute their previously gained knowledge and compare it with observations and experiences within the context of the practical project. Complementary skills such as social competence, risk management, budgeting and economically responsible decision-making are solidified while students consolidate and improve subject-specific skills. Students independently work on introduced projects based on the task briefing (by course management or external partners such as associations and companies), receiving only guidance from course management when needed. Students are responsible for planning, coordination, budgeting, checking, evaluation and final reporting. Course management is focused on project coaching.
