Bachelor seminar "Information Systems" 2022


The Seminar "Information Systems" will cover current topics of Business informatics that bridge the fields of technology and economy. Exemplary are the topics Blockchain, reputation mechanisms, user-generated content, assistance systems and context-sensitive applications.

These topics will be processed by the participants of the seminar, in a term paper and a presentation. Furthermore a project work will be offered, where one can either analyse a dataset with tools of multivariate analysis or machine learning or solve a business relevant problem by conception and implementation of a prototype. An introductionary course about scientific work will inform about the expected course of action.
