Learning Outcomes

As part of a large system development project the students get the opportunity to systematically analyse, model and develop (problem-oriented) a solution for a hot topic in information management. They are able to operate as a team member and are responsible for project organization, quality assurance and documentation. Overall, the quality of the solution and the development should be done through theoretical analysis, systematic experiments and tests.


At the start of the project, you receive a description of the topic and related detailed information. Then the team will determine, with assistance of the teacher, a project environment with the appropriate tools for teamwork, project communication, development environment and testing. Afterwards the problem is analyzed, modeled and broken down into individual components so individual tasks can be derived, which are then processed in smaller teams or individual work of team members. In the weekly project meetings the project team will present the project's progress with milestones reached and define the further steps by also taking the feedback from the teacher into account. At the end of the project, each team delivers a final report, presents a project poster and gives a final presentation with a demonstration of the prototype.
