The Eucon Group, digitalization partner for the automotive, insurance and real estate industries, is cooperating with the international information systems network ERCIS (European Research Center for Information Systems) with the aim of promoting a mutual exchange on innovative topics such as Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
In the winter semester of 2021/22, students of one of our master seminars examined the European Commission's current digital program "European Digital Decade" from various perspectives and with different thematic focuses. The program provides comprehensive digitization measures in all areas of life, and the seminar focused on topics related to the digitization of public administration.

The project "Digital Innovation for Sustainable Development" by Prof. Dr. Tobias Brandt will be supported for two years. The aim is to strengthen digital teaching and learning formats and make them freely accessible to lecturers and students across universities. For this purpose, the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia is funding the project with 542.000 euros.
Our Department warmly welcomes international guest researchers and lecturers from around the world for the summer semester:

Together with CLAAS, seven master students work on a prototype for Augmented reality for Agricultural Machinery. Where do I add AdBlue to my LEXION 8900-7400? Where is this specific fan belt that needs to be changed in my JAGUAR 960 TERRA TRAC? Imagine an AR solution available on your mobile phone, pointing you exactly to where you will find it.
Teaching and examination activities
The summer semester will be conducted in person as planned.
Until 24 April, students will have the option of either taking part in classes digitally or gaining access to their content in an alternative fashion. During this time, examinations should be administered in digital form if possible. Any courses and examinations which must be conducted in person due to their specific character (e.g. lab practicals, practical exercises in sport or music) can take place as normal.
