A variety of teaching methods employed across all departments offer possibilities for active learning. These include case-studies, project-based learning, problem-based learning, challenge-based learning, training and simulated learning. Industry visits and practice placements are important features of the teaching and learning process. The use of these teaching methods is enabled by a favourable teacher-student ratio and small classes, respectively “one to one” concept interaction.
The study methods and requirements for course completion will always be specified in the course syllabus available to the students before the course starts. Each course has a detailed syllabus, which is more detailed than a course programme and describes topics to be covered during the course–objectives, subject learning outcomes and content, organization of work, requirements for seminar and individual work, gives a list of required and recommended reading and sets of attendance and specific assessment rules.
