The module consists of an introductory phase where the basic programming techniques that are needed for the later work, are introduced. In the second phase a complex software development project will be implemented in teams of three to six students. The main focus of the module is to get experience in team-oriented software development using generally available tools and methods.

The practical work is accompanied by a plenary session, in which the software development techniques necessary for the project are discussed. This typically includes programming with programming libraries, graphics programming, aspects of object-oriented analysis, introduction to client-server programming and the use of software management tools. In addition actual problems which showed up in the current phase of the project are discussed.

The students work independently in small teams. Each team is assigned an adviser who helps the team in the upcoming tasks.

Qualification Aims

The software development internship provides practical experience in team-based development of a larger and complex software system using commonly available tools and methods. The goal is to develop the ability to develop in a small team a major software project. Upon successfully completing the software development internship, the participants should dare to take a student job in the IT industry.


The module requires knowledge that is taught in the modules "Introduction to Programming", "Programming and Modeling", "Algorithms and Data Structures", and "Software Engineering". For the successful completion of the practical course basic knowledge of the Java programming language is essential.
