Our offer for students in the summer term of 2021

The group of Cyber-Physical Systems welcomes all students in the summer term 2021 and we are very pleased to present you a wide range of courses again this semester. The offer is especially aimed at students of Business Information Systems and Human Computer Interaction. In the following, we will highlight four courses.

Project-Work in HCI – Various Topics (3LUDWI020V)

Here we offer you many different project topics around IoT, AR/VR, End-user Development, AI, Human-food interaction, and Gamification. After a first initial virtual meeting, we offer students the opportunity to work individually or in small teams on one of these topics. The supervision of the students during the semester is on an individual basis.

Current Research in Human-Food-Interaction (3LUDWI003V)

In this seminar, we will deal with the current state of research in Human-Food-Interaction. How do humans and food interact and how can we design for new ways of interaction? We are already looking forward to exciting discussions with you.

Developing High-fidelity Web Prototypes (Diving into the MEAN stack) (3LUDWI022V)

In this project course, we will introduce the development of high-fidelity web prototypes using the MEAN stack and thus the design and programming languages HTML5, (S)CSS, and JavaScript / TypeScript. We will present the current theoretical concepts based on practical exercises in the context of programming examples. Based on these basics, the students will develop a prototype for a given or their own concept that reads data from a database and visualizes it.

Exploring the Octalysis Framework: Designing playful Conversational Agents (3LUDWI015V)

Within this project course, students will become familiar with the Octalysis gamification framework and derive design opportunities for innovative CA concepts. Students are also introduced to the concept of “Edible Anthropomorphized Virtual Agents” (EAVA), which is the starting point for creating their own ideas for this approach. Therefore, the students are going to design an interaction concept or prototype themselves, encompassing the findings and knowledge of the previous learnings.

In addition to this offer, we also offer the supervision of final theses. Further information can be found here.
