The ADP/ARP should be done as a team work in a group of four to seven students.
Registration is possible either directly as a group or as an individual. Individual applicants are placed on an FZD-internal waiting list until enough participants for a group are available. If groups apply, the ADP/ARP can generally be conducted within the time frame the students wish for, provided timely planning.
Generally, a requirement for the participation in an automotive engineering ADP/ARP is the participation in one or more lectures of FZD. This depends on the topic of the offered ADP/ARP.
The time frames are set in correspondence with the supervising assistant of the ADP/ARP if a sufficient number of students (at least 4 persons) has applied for the ADP/ARP. The students’ wishes can be met regarding the scheduling of appointments in order to prevent an overlap e.g. with exams. If students apply as a group of at least four persons, the time frame can generally be set according to the wishes of the students.
The workload for every student (incl. preparation of the composition) amounts to 6 CPs, respectively 180 hours. Assuming a 40-hour week, the project duration amounts to 4.5 weeks. Besides the actual work on the project, this also includes one to two weeks of follow-up work (written composition and preparation of the final presentation). If the students wish to work on the ADP/ARP only part-time, for example because of exams, this can be taken into account in the planning. In that case, the project duration is adapted accordingly.
A group size of 5 persons is aspired, as this is optimal for student teamwork according to our experience. The examination regulations permit a group size of 4-7 students.
In principal, an ADP/ARP at FZD spans the work on various automotive engineering problems. Hereby, every student group works on a different topic. Examples of past ADPs/ARPs can be found on the homepage. Current assignments are announced on the homepage and on the notice boards of FZD.
Depending on the desired time frame, the application should take place at least one month before the desired start date. Registration is initially done without obligation by contacting the research assistant of the subject area named in the announcement. Individuals should apply earlier so that they can be integrated into an existing group or form a separate group.
After registration on a waiting list, each registered student will be invited by e-mail to a first meeting once the minimum group size is reached. Here, the participants can get to know each other (as far as they have not already registered as a group). Afterwards, the assignment is presented and a date is agreed for its implementation.
