Real world application.

This problem-based learning is a hands-on approach to learning centred on the investigation of complex, real-world problems, and their applying solutions with the direct use of theory learned in class. Industry and company needs change fast. This means that the class projects vary over time, and from course to course. Specific class projects can't be guaranteed, so during the first week of the program, you will be briefed on the project identified for the course and what the outcomes are.
