From the first year on, you work and learn in working groups to carry out projects. This allows you to acquire valuable soft skills over the course of your studies, such as the application of theory in practice, the development of team skills, and the further enhancement of organisational and communication skills. This experience gives you a crucial advantage in your future career. By means of the interdisciplinary approach, you are encouraged to develop the ability to think and act across disciplines and to be open to lifelong learning.
