We believe that delivering cutting-edge knowledge and inspiring education, as well as an ongoing dialog with the public need to go hand in hand to maximize the impact of our work in organizations and society.

The human-centered systems lab (h-lab) headed by Prof. Maedche (research group “Information Systems I”) offers a comprehensive teaching program empowering students to design human-centered systems for better work & life. We offer lectures on the bachelor, master, and PhD level primarily targeting students from the field of Industrial Engineering & Management, Information Systems, and Computer Science. We also welcome students from other programs. 

Our teaching offerings are tailored for students interested in Information Systems and Human-Computer Interaction. Following our research focus, we specifically emphasize designing human-centered systems for business and society. Our teaching offerings balance theory and practice by introducing the state-of-the-art theoretical and methodological concepts in combination with practice-oriented aspects of designing human-centered systems for better work & life.
