Thesis & Practical Seminar Projects

The human-centered systems lab (h-lab) headed by Prof. Dr. Alexander Maedche (research group “Information Systems I", formerly ISSD) focuses in research, education, and innovation on designing human-centered systems for better work & life.  

Our mission is to create impactful knowledge for designing human-centered systems for human productivity and well-being through relevant and rigor scientific research. We leverage advanced artificial intelligence (AI)  and biosignal sensor technologies and follow a socio-technical research paradigm for increasing human productivity and well-being through human-centered systems.

We contribute to the fields of human-computer interaction (HCI) (Mensch-Computer Interaktion) and information systems (IS) (Wirtschaftsinformatik). 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.

Our current research topics are:

Teaching and research is tightly interconnected in our research group. Thesis & practical seminar projects are offered in the following research topics:

Besides thesis projects on the bachelor and master level we additionally offer practical seminars (Seminarpraktikum) (4,5 ECTS). They are part of several modules and provide a complementary alternative to traditional lectures. In practical seminars, students develop a running software prototype for a defined topic.

We offer the following value propositions for students engaging in a thesis & practical seminar project in our research group:

  • Work together with us and our cooperation partners on a topic that has real-world relevance and impact
  • Build up expertise in AI & biosignal sensor processing technologies as well as Data Science
  • Engage with innovative interactive technologies and learn design methods & techniques for human-centered systems
  • Apply established research methods and deliver scientific knowledge

On this page you find currently offered topics for bachelor and master thesis as well as practical seminars. We will also consider thesis proposals from students fitting to the research interests of the research group. Please inform yourself on our Web pages and approach us directly.

Practical Seminars

Here you find a list of currently offered practical seminars (Seminarpraktikum) (4,5 ECTS). Practical seminars are part of several modules and provide an alternative to traditional lectures. In practical seminars, students get an individual assignment and develop a running software prototype. Beside the software prototype, the students also deliver a written documentation.

In case you are interested in carrying out a practical seminar at our research group in a topic that is currently not listed, but in our research focus, feel free to approach us.
