Besides the theory we learn as a student at the Faculty of Computer Science at HFU, I also found the strong emphasis on teamwork and soft skills especially good. Right at the start of the first semester we were divided up into groups of 8 and each group was given a small software project to carry out. The aim was not for the groups to complete the (for first semester students rather demanding) task perfectly, but rather for the group of students who didn't know each other well, to form a unit to work together and grow. In this way we became friends, achieved our goals and it formed an important basis for academic success and our later working life, where nowadays teamwork is essential.
