In the event "project group", a group of usually 8–16 students work on a topic assigned to them by the group's supervisor over the period of twelve months (two semesters). The aim is to learn and test practically, teamwork and organization, in order to prepare students for future professional practice. Contentwise, project groups should introduce students to current research topics. This involves for students 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
- The project group can only be started when the bachelor's degree has been successfully completed. The Bachelor's degree is successfully completed, when all examinations have been passed and the 4.0 confirmation is handed over to the examination office by 31 March for the summer term and by 30 September for the winter term.
- The project group can only be started when the enrollment in the master's degree course has been completed. Students of the bachelor's program, who reach the 4.0 confirmation or examinations only on the 31st of March and on the 30th of September, must therefore enroll for the Master's degree course in the relevant period of the change of studies.
