Type of instruction
The project work is carried out as an independent work process
in which the students themselves organize and coordinate their
workload in collaboration with a supervisor.
When doing a project-oriented stay in a company, the
student is included in the company’s daily work and carry out
independent project work on an industrial problem relevant for
the company. Concurrent to the work in the company, the student
makes a project report, which is evaluated after the ending of the
internship. A project-oriented stay in a company has to be approved
by the study board.
Extent and expected workload
Since it is a 20 ECTS project module the expected workload
is 600 hours for the student.
