WHAT IS A PROJECT STUDY?
Student teams work three months full-time to six months part-time on concrete questions within a research or practical project. The goal of the project study is to apply acquired knowledge in practice and to gain experience in project management “learning by doing”. Examples of possible project studies can be found on the topics page.
