Projects

The following courses may be studied as projects - equivalent to 16 ECTS - as part of the master programmes computer science and media informatics, and under certain conditions also within the software engineering programme.

Projects may be partially offered as joint projects of the section Applied Subject of the study porgramme media informatics (12 ECTS), and will then be supplemented by additional tasks.

It is also possible to complete half a project - 8 ECTS.

Please clarify you demand with your supervisor in advance.

Description (Kopie 1)

After a first stage in which the research teams are established, they will chose and work on application subjects. The main objectives are set with the help of the lecturer and the tutors.

The teams will carry out a focussed literature review, as well as sketch a first project plan, leading to a documented project draft. This draft includes assertions to the following subjects:

  • topic setting
  • literature research
  • design concept
  • familiarisation with technical foundations
  • design of architecture

After a successful implementation stage, we expect a consistent project documentation, a project web site, a short demo video, and presentable screen shots.

The project, running for two semesters, can be enhanced to meet the criteria of an application subject according to the examination regulations.

Process

The projects starts with a first stage of theoretical acquaintance of the chosen topic. A project plan is then derived which has to be documented as project proposal. This proposal comprises

  • topic definition
  • literatur research
  • concept
  • introduction of technical foundations
  • architectual concept

After the completion of the project, a project documentation, a website, and a demo video have to be created.

Examples

To become familiar with the work of possible topics and what is expected, take a look at

  1. Previous and current reserach projects of the research group Visual Computing
  2. Completed thesis projects of the research group Visual Computing

Illustration: Projects of Research Group Visual Computing

Content

The course gives the opportunity to start projects to solve challenges in the area of deep learning in visual computing. It aims at creating an executable prototipical system.

Process

The project work starts after a first phase of topic precisioning. First, you have to become familiar with the releveant theoretic contributions. Then you will frame the implementation itself and document your goals as to:

  • topic determination
  • literature research
  • conceptualisation
  • technical basis
  • concept of the architecture

The successful implementation has then to be documented by a general project documentation, a project website, a short demo video, and meaningful screenshots.

 

Examples

To become familiar with some implementations and project results, please take a look at:

  1. Current and finished research projects of the research group Visual Computing
  2. List of theses of the research group Visual Computing.

Content

This project course is intended to learn and undergo the entire process of design thinking. In particular, it is about the development and enhancement of first-in-class interaction techniques. The goal consists of creating and evaluating a prototypical system.

Process

The project starts of with an introduction in design thinking and related methods. In addition, contemporary technologies are introduced and can be experienced.

Design Thinking encompasses the following steps:

  • Empathize
  • Define
  • Ideate
  • Prototype
  • Test

During the project, a dedicated website and a short demo video is to be generated.

Examples

To get a first impression what this project and its topics are about, please take a look at the

 

list of ongoing and completed research projects of the research group human-computer interaction

 

Topics on offer will be introduced and illustrated at a kick off meeting at the beginning of the first semester.
