Practical Projects

What is a practical project?

The practical project is an opportunity to carry out a project with a practical background during the course of study. The duration of the practical project is set at six weeks and eight credit points are obtained (PO 2013, PO 2020: 450h, 15 credit points). A practical project can also be carried out by several students together, if the individual performances are verifiable. A direct connection to a bachelor thesis is also possible.

What is the purpose of a practical project?

Students acquire on the basis of the practical project:

  • the application of learned technical knowledge,
  • additional expertise according to the respective project-specific task,
  • the independent generation of their own solution strategies,
  • the ability to divide the work and work together in a team (teamwork skills and project organization) and
  • competence with regard to the documentation and presentation of results.
