In the event "project group", a group of usually 8–16 students works on a topic assigned to them by the group's supervisor, over the period of twelve months (two semesters). At this, teamwork and organization required for the project are learned and tested practically, in order to prepare students for future professional practice. Contentwise, project groups should introduce students to current research topics. For students this involves that a project group's participant is predestined to adopt a master's thesis from the concerned domain. Particulars can be learned from the guidelines for project groups
