Objectives Throughout the course, students:
  • Identify real-world problems and recognise the problems of creating complex solutions using a wide variety of IoT platforms. They are in a position to analyse the environment of the problem and are able to discuss these in advance in cooperation with companies.
  • Acquire knowledge of design thinking, agile project management and the independent implementation of projects is acquired in teamwork. They are able to apply interdisciplinary knowledge, integrate the problem solver into the project in an agile manner and to present the results of their work.
Teaching Content

The cooperating companies offer the students real problems from the most important IoT domains, such as Smart Agriculture, Smart Building, Smart Energy, Smart Production, eHealth, etc.

The problem is described in detail using defined application cases. In addition, the aspects of IoT Cloud and IoT Security are also examined.
The students are supervised by the lecturer and the coach of the innovation lab.

Objectives

After successful completion of this course, students:

  • Know the problems of creating complex systems
  • Can apply the basics of scientific work and know how to independently carry out projects appropriate to the degree programme
  • Have learned to work in a team and have acquired knowledge in estimating the scope of projects as well as in the management and supervision of projects.
  • Are able to apply interdisciplinary knowledge and present work results.
ContentThe teachers of the Faculty of Computer Science offer the students a choice of project topics with a short description. Teams of students can propose a project themselves, for this you must find a supervising lecturer. The students are regularly supervised professionally by the issuing lecturer.

Objectives

Students are motivated to work scientifically and will be able to acquire subject-specific knowledge from the scientific literature and to prepare this knowledge for specific target groups.


The course covers four areas:

1. Basics of scientific work

Students understand the necessity of a scientific approach to problems and are able to understand the basic concepts of scientific work. (e.g. research questions, argumentation logic, writing style, citation)

2. Research methods

Students are able to apply essential research methods commonly used in business informatics and to assess the basic applicability of these methods for a given problem. In addition, they understand the basics of design-oriented research (Design Science). Furthermore, they are able to conduct a systematic literature study on their own.

3. Handling of scientific texts

Students can describe the structure of scientific texts, apply reading strategies and assess their basic scientific quality. Furthermore, they can compile, evaluate and compare the core statements of different scientific texts.

4. Presentation and discussion

In the area of presentation and discussion, students understand the essential elements of effective presentations and are able to apply them to a lecture. In addition, they are able to apply argumentation strategies for professional discussions and methods for effective discussion moderation.


Implicitly, this course promotes the English language level of the students to the level B2.2/C1.1 of the CEFR. Through intensive literature work with English-language scientific texts and their presentation/discussion, they have the ability to understand the main content of complex texts on concrete and abstract topics as well as to participate in specialist discussions in the field of business information systems.
