My favorite project is 'ongoing' - what to do?
Contact an instructor, if you like a similar project study. Companies are often offering follow-up projects.

Your instructor could have therefore similar projects in pipeline which could sound good to you.

What is the goal of a project study?
A group of 2-5 Bachelor students work on a well-scoped unique corporate project to:

  • apply and enlarge knowledge acquired during study,
  • enhance problem solving skills,
  • increase critical thinking skills,
  • improve presentation skills,
  • practice good work ethics with business partners.

Please note: A project study is not just a description of an internship!

The group is mentored by advisors both from the chair and the company. You will typically meet them every 2-4 weeks.

How long does the project last? When can we start?

A project lasts 3 months (full time) or 6 months (during the semester). You can start the project according to your time preferences.
