Module content:
Teams of up to seven international students from different universities, nationalities, degree programs and semesters work together during this intensive project week at the htw saar or at any of our partner universities to solve a practical project task assigned by companies or an application-oriented research and development institute.
 
Starting with the presentation of the project task by a company representative, the students will go through all the main stages in the development of a product:
-        Creating ideas
-        Evaluating ideas
-        Designing the product
 
Students must present their final product design to the competing teams, professors and company representatives. In addition to the presentation, they also have to write a project report.
