We are attending to a better distribution of the project work across the different course units to avoid coinciding deadlines or taking up time allotted to other course units (that have no project work).
Many students conduct their Master’s dissertation in a business context and in so doing, they gain their first hands-on experience. In theory, this is a a positive trend. In some cases, however, this is detrimental to the scientific-academic quality of their work. We will monitor this closely by means of e.g. programme feedback.
Since there is no specific preparatory Bachelor of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research (prospective) students are still insufficiently acquainted with our Master’s programme. We intend to draw the attention of (prospective) students and companies to our specific profile and branding by participating in information sessions and graduate fairs. In addition to these measures, we also strive to organize our own Bachelor’s programme in due course.
