Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
60 class hours (= 45 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 180 hours (equivalent to 6 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 135 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to design and develop Smart Services based on Industry 4.0 or the Internet of Things in an international and globally distributed project team.
In addition to acquiring professional qualifications in a project team with different linguistic, social and geographical environments, students will:
- learn to assume professional and organizational responsibility
- receive insights into intercultural competence with a focus on China
- be capable of communicating in and with the foreign language environment
- be able to arrange work with team members from different learning backgrounds and nations
- establish contacts with foreign partners promoting internationalization
- analyze and where necessary, adapt to other work methods
All of the above will enable students to quickly enter international project management after starting their career.
