TL - Project:
Students are required to select and refine a technical topic of their work which is originally given by the tutors.
They have to:
- select a topic
- build a project team
- create a list of tasks and define owners
- create a time schedule including the tasks and owners
- work on the tasks based on the time schedule
- handle upcoming problems in terms of technical aspects as well as their potential impacts on the time schedule
Projects outside the htw saar with automotive industry or its component suppliers are possible but have to be aligned with the tutors of the course.
TL - Technical Reports and Presentations in English:
As the course Technical Reports and Presentations in English forms an integral part of the module FT 30 Engineering Project in English, students are required to attend the English course and complete the engineering project simultaneously.
The contents of this course are closely related to the different projects in the field of automotive engineering that students work on in the course of the semester. They include in particular:
- strategies to acquire new technical vocabulary relevant to the respective project topics
- working with technical texts from the field of automotive engineering
- dealing with secondary literature
- presentations on different topics from the automotive industry
- preparing and giving technical presentations
- introduction to writing technical texts (structure, writing strategies, style of writing)
- writing a project report

TL - Technical Reports and Presentations in English:
During this communicative language course, the four basic language skills (listening comprehension, reading comprehension, oral and written expression) will be trained in an integrated way with a particular focus on written and oral expression. To reach the learning objectives, different teaching/learning methods will be applied: whole class work, pair work, group work, (guided) self-study periods, peer review, etc. Students will also have the opportunity to receive feedback on their work in progress as well as practise giving presentations in class.
Students will be provided with various types of learning and self-study materials (print, audio, video and m&e-learning materials) specially developed or adapted for this course.
