Project Opportunities

In a fast-paced world companies constantly face new chal-lenges that need to be overcome. During the lecture “Project Management” students are provided with theoretical knowledge on project manage-ment tools, methods and systems – supported by a project supervision to foster performing teams.

To provide valuable practical insights CUAS students get the opportunity (4th semester, bachelor) to work on practice-based projects in cooperation with partners from business and industry.

A CUAS project coach supports the teams project progress and acts as point of contact for both – business partners and students.

Do you also have projects for which resources are lacking in your day-to-day business? We look forward to hearing from you
