Welcome to Kempten University’s International Project Server (IPS)!
Practically focused project work forms an integral part of training in various faculties at a German University of Applied Sciences. At the same time, the importance of internationally oriented education is growing rapidly in the increasingly global economy.
Here at Kempten University, we are keen to embrace the exciting opportunities this challenge presents and offer international project teams made up of students from Kempten University and our partner universities the chance to host their projects on our international project server – free of charge.
With support from the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and Art, we are proud to offer international project teams an innovative environment and optimum conditions for collaborating on their projects.
The project server acts as a “protected area” for the development, quality assurance and documentation of students’ project work, theses and research projects – while also enhancing the external profile of Kempten University’s international activities. Another key aim is to inform our international partners about topical highlights, such as successful projects and attractive offers for visiting students.
We use the open-source software Git for local version management of files, and work with GitLab (also open-source) to manage Git repositories online. GitLab is a useful tool for managing projects, users, groups, ticket management and wikis, and is very popular with our students because of its easy usability.
Throughout the duration of their projects, students are supervised by professors in the department and benefit from a wide range of assistance, which ensures the project gets off the ground quickly and gains from a strategic approach.
Weekly international team meetings during the project are conducted via web conferencing, which helps the participants to get to know one another personally. In addition, students have access to special chat software on the server that they can use to communicate quickly and easily.
Being part of an international project team like this not only provides valuable practical experience and strengthens your team’s competence, but also opens up totally different perspectives and approaches. Your involvement will enhance your language skills and broaden your horizons, as you make new contacts around the world! The language spoken throughout international projects is English.
All projects will be presented on our website upon completion.
Would you like to use our international project server for joint student project work with us? If so, we really look forward to hearing from you!
