Project proposals

During the course, student teams implement a software product, or add new features to an existing application. The team size is typically 6 or 7 team members. Depending on the project, the team can dedicate around 800 to 900 hours to complete it. It is required that the customer collaborates with the team during the project and participates in all important meetings (Project plan review, sprint reviews, final meeting).

The projects starts twice every year (end of August, beginning of January).
