Thereby, the students will choose a topic from a catalog of pre-defined topics in the area of advanced model engineering together with the course advisors. Subsequently, they will conduct a literature search and elaborate their seminar papers. In a closing workshop, the students will present and discuss their results with the other students participating in the seminar.
