Principles of research

Principles of research at the Institute of Technology and Process Management are considered to be:

  • Science-based, but always easy enough to apply
  • Research is based on methods  – Method Engineering is the descriptive frame
  • Research is based on models – Quantitative Modelling serves as the base for decision-making
  • Research is based on options – Options Theory is the base for developing scenarios
  • Research is solution-oriented - reference solution describe operating interdependences

While tools to aquire solutions are defined by methods and models, options and reference solutions provide the result by themselves.

A master thesis obligatory has to cover these contents and contains a quantitative model in its core. Additionally master theses are worked out, whenever possible, close with the industry and/or the consulting sector. Thus a high practical orientation is assured.

Based on the three fields of research Strategy & Innovation, Technology and Process, topics of scientific papers are arised from. By following this link you will find these topics: Topics of scientific papers.
