The project seminar deals with problems at the interface between the examination system and business informatics. In the seminar, competencies in the final exam are taught, which also include specialist and DP examining techniques. The participants work on a case study about the final exam as part of a team of specialist and DP examiners. They independently develop and document exam results that they present and defend in the end. The project seminar will be carried out in cooperation with PricewaterhouseCoopers International (PWC) and the Society for scientific Data Processing mbH Göttingen (Gesellschaft für wissenschaftliche Datenverarbeitung mbH Göttingen - GWDG). Both partners represent one of the two departments involved, which are necessary for the IT-supported final exam. The requirements for motivation and commitment are high.
