Soft Skills

The IMPRS on Trustworthy Computing offers seminars on various subjects in the area of soft skills. The seminars are targeted at our students and aim at deepening their knowledge, as well as at providing them an opportunity for practical exercise.

The various seminars usually consist of some form of lecture or presentation on the subject, as well as a practical part in which the students analyze and correct their own work and that of others. In this way, the newly acquired knowledge becomes experience.
