Internet of Things and Industrial Services Seminar (Masters)


The term Internet of Things (IoT), also known as Industry 4.0 in the industrial context, is on everyone’s lips today. At the core of IoT is the interconnection of all things, which leads to great potential in the design of a disruptive business model and the creation of new customer experiences. Examples are
modern networked cars and production machines in the smart factory. The data generated and captured by these smart devices enables a multitude of new services. In the seminar, students will learn how to design these new kinds of services in a comprehensive way by working on their own innovative service idea.

Learning objectives and skills

The students

  • work independently on a concept for the design and implementation of an IoT-based service from a
    service science and/or technological perspective based on their own idea
  • obtain theoretical knowledge about the highly relevant issues of Cyber-Physical Systems, the Internet
    of Things and, on this basis, the design of industrial services and business models
  • develop an understanding of the technological possibilities, business opportunities and methods for
    developing digital industrial services
  • expand their competencies in scientific research and writing
  • acquire relevant soft skills for their later working life, such as presenting and working efficiently in groups
