Digital Transformation Project

Semester: Summer Term
Course Type: Seminar
Type of Interaction: Digital Transformation Project is a small course with max. 30 students.
  • This course is brought to you on sight in person.
  • The course has a lecture-guided format with a project-based application of learnings.
  • The course is structured by synchronous lectures once a week, in which key concepts for successful completion of the course will be explained.
  • In addition, knowledge bites are provided online, which need to be absorbed asynchronously and will then be discussed during the synchronous lectures.
  • Moreover, students will be divided into teams to work on projects. Here you will be able to work asynchronously, meaning the timing of the completion of tasks is at your own disposal and only needs to be coordinated within your team and with your mentors from our industry partner.
  • Solution development sessions are offered on-demand virtually or in-person at WiSo (Lange Gasse 20).

[ Is offered in summer term 2024 ]

In this course, students will focus on developing and evaluating solutions for organizational challenges in the context of digital transformation. In doing so, they work together with organizations from various industries and gain in-depth experience in solving organizational problems using a systematic design science research process. Moreover, they will get familiar with empirical research methods and improve their presentation as well as writing skills.

The case partner for this year is a large alliance that formed around IoT technologies.

The course is offered annually each summer term. The number of participants is limited to a maximum of 30 students (Due to the interactive course format we can’t provide more seats in the course).
