With the Engineering Seminar: Human-Centered Systems (formerly known as "Current Topics in Digital Transformation - CDT Seminar"), we aim to provide students with the possibility to independently work on state-of-the-art research topics in addition to the knowledge gained in the lectures of the human-centered systems lab (Prof. Mädche). Students will work on a dedicated topic in the context of human-centered systems and apply a pre-defined research method. A broad spectrum of topics is offered every semester, topics may range from creating an experimental design, analyzing collected data, or systematically comparing existing software prototypes in a specific field of interest.

Learning Objectives

The students

  • focus on a contemporary topic at the intersection of Information Systems and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and apply a pre-defined research method
  • write a seminar thesis following academic writing standards
