The Software Engineering Project will not be offered in summer 2017. The next round will only start in Winter 2017/18.

Software Engineering Project

Plan and implement a professional software project!

Together in a team of 5-8 students you will learn to plan, manage and implement a professional real-world software project. All project topics originate from industry partners, outside of the campus.

You develop your own solution strategy and learn to organize yourself as a team. You have to collectively specify requirements and define processes for your team. Other focusses of this course are to learn how to create a design for a large software architecture and how to assure the quality of such a project. Depart from the technical details you will acquire experience in communication with a client and you will develop invaluable soft skills.

The software engineering project is scheduled to run over one semester. During this time, your team is directly supported by an experienced member of our group. If you need help, he will support you with experience and knowledge. In addition to this we offer team and presentation trainings in cooperation with the “Hochschuldidaktische Arbeitsstelle” (HDA).
