Student projects

Students work on an integrated practical project over a period of approximately 450 hours in a company of their choice. Student projects are part of applied research and development projects carried out by the degree programme for third parties in its specific R&D areas.

You'll be working independently here, but always with the support of the teaching staff and the company. Very often the integrated practical project gives rise to the topic for the diploma thesis, or an attractive job offer to start your career. Many of our Master’s students already work part-time during their degree programme for the company in which they carry out their practical project.

Current student projects

ITSM Cloud Architecture

From the standard documents of a service level agreement (SLA), the existing database was transformed into a cloud-based IT service management software architecture. An integrated monitoring platform continuously monitors the agreed service performance parameters and checks their validity.

Malfunctions are combined with the SLA management data and presented for the service technicians in a transparent fashion, arranged according to priority. Custom modules were developed for the database and process logic using SharePoint. The interfaces were linked to the Windows Service Bus and the MS Azure Service Bus and are therefore also available as services with a defined interface. Suitable front-ends to allow intuitive operation were developed based on SharePoint apps.

Reactive Programming

Reactive programming is an emergent design approach for creating interactive, fault-tolerant, scalable, event-driven applications.

The aim of this project is to examine reactive programming paradigms in the context of the flow of goods and logistics. This will clarify the requirements, potential and consequences of an event-driven application architecture. The benefits of using this type of non-blocking architecture consistently will also be studied.
