One of the most serious problems in software engineering projects is the communication between users and developers. It is widely recognized that communication problems are a major factor in the delay and failure of software projects. During university education, students are usually well-skilled in programming languages, hard- and software engineering tools and project management. This paper provides theoretical background and some successful examples how authors train the students under 'real world' conditions within software projects at the university e.g. to work in teams or to communicate with different stakeholders? Both method and employability result in excellent ratings.
