As participants from FH Dortmund, the international Master students of the programmes “Digital Transformation”, “Embedded Systems Engineering” and “European Master of Project Management” get the chance to take part in the block week. During this event, students will be divided into different streams:

 

Master students of FH Dortmund and EuroPIM partners:

  • Innovation Driven Software Engineering
  • Software for Robots (completely booked)
  • Model-Based Systems Engineering
  • Digital Marketing
  • Sustainability and Quality in Project Management

Bachelor students of InduTwin partners:

Format: hybrid

Stream A: Innovation Driven Software Engineering

Organizers: Jonas Sorgalla, Philipp Heisig, Florian Rademacher (FH Dortmund)

Target Group/Topics: Computer Science, Requirements Engineering, Product Design

Short Description: The course covers the steps before the actual programming of software. Together we will learn the Design Thinking approach to generate and implement innovative software product ideas. You will apply Design Thinking in small groups under the guidance of a research associate using real life research scenarios. Afterwards you will get to know Domain Driven Design and the modeling techniques it contains as an alternative to classical requirements engineering. If there is enough time, we will also take first steps towards agile process models like Scrum.

Short Description:

  • This project seminar contains an introduction to the working method “Business
    Design”, which is developed on the basis of six guiding principles and prepared for
    the use in innovation projects by means of methods and tools. The imparted
    approach is intended to serve as an inspiration for the design of innovation projects
    and can/should be adapted to individual needs depending on the project focus.
    • The course imparts methodological and professional skills from the fields of design
    thinking, lean start-up, product and project management. The goal is to apply these
    skills in a context of high uncertainty in the field of digitization and Industry 4.0 and to
    systematically and iteratively eliminate these uncertainties in the development of
    business and product ideas.
