The very first days at a university are important for every beginner. We did an experiment and launched a project work for our students of the degree program “Business Informatics”. It was a challenge to ask our students to apply design techniques like Entity-Relationship-Diagram, parts of the Unified Modelling Language (UML), or Event-driven Process Chains (EPC), to a small real world situation. Thus we forced our students to conceive real world situations and to design the underlying information processes in a semi-formal style. Some ideas of the CDIO initiative were applied as well.
We line out that these first days had a strong influence on the students: They socialised faster than in the years before, they got to know the university much faster and they experienced team work from the very beginning.
