Project work

The project work in the 3rd semester prepares students for methodological and thus realistic planning of projects. In the 4th and 6th semesters, students of the Faculty demonstrate, often impressively, that a strong knowledge base and broad know-how, directed as a team at real-life tasks, can product astonishing creativity and effectiveness. The projects, always carried out in teams of between 4 and 6 students, are a core element of the programmes in the Faculty of Business Administration and Engineering with demonstrated success for over 30 years.

Thesis work

To complete their bachelor's degree, in the 7th semester students demonstrate that they are capable of carrying out academic work on a specific subject. In most cases the thesis is carried out in cooperation with a well-known firm and allows students to increase the practical know-how they have gained in the 3rd, 4th and 6th semesters. Poster presentations of all theses complete the thesis work and speeches on selected work give an insight into the broad spectrum of topics dealt with in the Faculty.
