The students for their part are invited to present essentials aspects of their work or projects at tandem lectures. This way they can define their own priorities beyond the scope of their particular specialist knowledge and discover whilst developing and testing their personal strengths

Personal development seminars

The residents are prepared for their role as leaders in industry, teaching and research in construction-related sectors. First and foremost, they receive training in cooperation and communication skills. This training covers topics such as leadership and working together with others, conflict management as well as conversational and intercultural skills. Working closely with professional trainers, all of the seminars are tailored so to meet the individual needs of the residents.
