Special features regarding teaching

New forms of teaching that are based on teamwork: the team project is a form of teaching where the students work on a specific, practice-related and/or research-related task in supervised groups. At least one team project while studying, more team projects possible; practical relevance and proximity to research through subject-specific "team projects" in every subject of Computer Science, example topics: IoT developments and test environments, design and development of ERP modules, deep learning applications, search services or data mining functions, social network analysis and customer preferences.
