The course deals with central project methods and their possibilities and limitations in practise. Further more the course deals with the psychological and social barriers that can occur during project execution and how these can be handled. How a constructive an creative project situation can be created is especially studied.
To put emphasis on the practical aim and direction of the course it is mainly built on "Live cases". This means that the student works with concrete, practical technical problems in project form in companies and organisations. Reporting is both in writing and viva voce (in groups and individually). To support the work a number of theoretical training sessions are also carried out. In the course there are parts where the students are trained in "team building".
