The Group Project will be a unique experience in your student career because it will give you a glimpse of what the 'professional world' is really like. Normally, professionals work in groups, have tight deadlines and have to be able to communicate and co-operate with other people. The performance of a group does not depend simply on the sum of the abilities of the individuals within it. Careful planning, frequent constructive meetings, goodwill and co-operation are needed to make a group successful.
