The Staatliche Hochschule für Gestaltung (HfG) and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) renewed their cooperation agreement for joint research, teaching, and innovation. The Institute of Information Systems and Marketing (IISM) is driving this renewed cooperation from the KIT side. Specifically, as part of the digital experience network various joint activities are planned. For example, in the practical seminar "Digital Experience" students from both institutions will jointly work on projects in the fields of user experience, gamification, and media narration.
The specialization "Data Science" is a unique offering at KIT primarily targeting Industrial Engineering & Management as well as Information Engineering & Management students on the master level. Four core "Data Science" modules are offered by professors of the Institute of Information Systems and Marketing (IISM). Additionally, further relevant lectures are recommended from other fields, e.g. Operations Research, Computer Science, Econometrics/Statistics in order to complement the core four modules.mehr
