course contents

To prepare the students optimally for problems in working life, practical tasks are worked on in groups, preferably on the basis of commissions from partners from industry or public institutions, or field experiences are obtained under the guidance of the course leader. The students contribute their acquired knowledge and compare it with observations and experiences in the context of the practical project. While the students

can deepen and improve their subject-specific competences, complementary competences such as social competence, risk management, budgeting competence and economically responsible decision-making competence are also solidified.

Based on a client briefing (by the course instructor or external partners such as associations and companies), the students work on the presented projects independently, only guided by the course instructor if necessary: Planning, coordination, budgeting, control, evaluation and final reporting are in the hands of the students. The role of the course leader is focused on project coaching.
