Group formation, problem formulation, method, analysis, writing process and cooperation are just some of the elements of problem-oriented project work.

This book supports the students in acquiring the craft of project work from the initial project concept to the last sentence of the report.

To achieve this, the authors present the questions that the students will encounter. The students are given specific tools, ideas and concepts relevant to the process and work involved in carrying out a project.

Since the last edition of the English version of this book, it has been revised several times with updated chapters, new examples, a new structure and new co-writers of some chapters.
