Type of instruction

The module is carried out as group-based problem-oriented project work. The group work is carried out as an independent work process in which the students themselves organize and coordinate their workload in collaboration with a supervisor. The project is carried out in groups with normally no more than 4 members.

Extent and expected workload

Since it is a 20 ECTS course module the expected workload is 600 hours for the student.
