Course main content

The course applies "student centered learning" on real problems from the media technology area.

The work is done in small groups, where the students under guidance of a teacher, acquire and apply new knowledge in a context of problem solving based on method knowledge for project work.

In these groups, a problem is defined, solutions are suggested and are validated by building of prototypes. The results are presented and documented.
