The Focus Project promotes project-oriented learning. Students develop a concept, design, calculate and build a product; working together in teams from the initial idea through to a fully-functioning prototype. They acquire the necessary knowledge either through individual study, attending courses, or discussion with their professor. Projects are generally carried out in conjunction with partners in industry.
Students work on their Bachelor's Thesis in the sixth semester, and complete it with a written report and a presentation. The thesis builds on the basic knowledge acquired during the Bachelor course and the Focus Specialization or Focus Project.
The Master's Thesis concludes the Master's studies. It should demonstrate the student’s competency in both independent and scientifically-structured activity. The subject of the thesis is either closely linked to the research activity of the professor / tutor, or covers a challenging theme in industry.
