Practical study semester

The practical study semester (5th semester) serves to apply and deepen the theoretical knowledge acquired during the course of studies under practical conditions in cooperation with companies. Practical experience abroad is explicitly supported by an international network of universities and companies.


Bachelor thesis

The final thesis (bachelor thesis) is written in the 7th semester and is usually carried out in cooperation with companies in the fields of production, logistics and information technology. It is intended to show that the student is able to work independently on a task from the main focus of information logistics within a given time using engineering methods. The thesis can of course also be completed at partner universities or companies abroad.
