Learning methods and activities

- Group work

- Project work

- Reflection

- Assignments

- Seminars

- Supervision

Additional information: The projects will be organized in groups, ideally, more than three students per group. Project groups may be distributed to allow distant students to participate in the group work.

Obligatory coursework: Students should participate in the seminars by presenting project status and sharing their experiences / reflections on the project work. Students should present the final project during the last seminar. Students who cannot participate physically, need to submit written or recorded contributions in advance.

Further on evaluation

Grade: A - F

Project work with oral examination based on the project work (adjusting oral examination):

  • Students must successfully complete both parts individually.

Project work requires submission of:

  • A group report shared by all group members documenting the results of the project work and reflecting on the group's work and contributions
  • An individual report written by each student documenting the student's own experiences and reflections in the project.

Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Applied Computer Science (MACS)
