Raspberry Pis for the 2017 AMOS projects have landed!

You prefer low-level over high-tech toys, you love the smell of soldering in the morning, and see the beauty in bare integrated circuits? Here are our new Raspberry Pis for two AMOS projects in 2017.

Impressions from Business Plan Presentations in PROD

Below, please find some photo impressions from the project presentations in PROD, our software product management course. Students were given key use-cases from FAU startups and presented their findings in the form of an investor pitch. Thanks, teams, for all your hard work!


Pricing of Enterprise Software Products

Today, Nikolay Harutyunyan taught his first teaching case in PROD, our software product management course. The case was on pricing enterprise software products. Also present was Ernst Haagsman of Jetbrains, the original case author. Both Nick and Ernst are graduates of FAU’s International Information Systems program. Congratulations, Nick, for a job well done!

Amazon Echo and Echo Dot Have Landed

Below, please get a first glimpse of some of the tech we will be using in the upcoming summer 2017 AMOS projects.

Alexa, beam me up!

FAU’s Alexander reports about the 2016 AMOS projects

FAU’s Alexander, our news publication, reports about the 2016 AMOS projects and their demo-day (in German). We would like to add the AMOS testimonials ;-). Thanks to team 2 which served as the example. Please see the PDF or the screenshots below.

2016 AMOS Project Testimonial by AVL DiTest

Tobias Jähnel of AVL DiTEST wrote to us about their experiences as a project sponsor in the 2016 AMOS Project:

AVL DiTEST sponsored an AMOS project in 2016. The content of this project was the development of a Wireshark Plug-In for the analysis of Vehicle Diagnostic communication on Ethernet. This software is now an extremely helpful tool for our work. Our developers and vehicle specialists use it on an almost daily basis and meanwhile it is also in use by our customers. The students implemented the content of the whole specification ISO 13400-2, which is far more than we expected. We are actively improving the tool, which is easy because of the good project structure and documentation we received.

It was a pleasure working with a team of motivated and skillful students. They worked self-organised and reacted quickly on feedback. Through the lectures and coaching by the university the students were very well equipped.

We will definitely target another AMOS project for next year.

Thank you, Tobias and AVL DiTest for your sponsorship and engagement in the 2016 AMOS projects!

An Example AMOS Sprint Meeting (in German)

This (summer) semester 2016 we started recording AMOS guest speakers and also one AMOS team meeting to illustrate student teams go about their work. Thank you to team 2, mobile robot, in collaboration with Develop Group, for letting us film them! Below, please find the video of the session.

2016 AMOS Project Testimonial by Senacor AG

Andreas Gärtner of Senacor, the sponsor of the 2016 AMOS Project Conference App, writes to us:

[…] zunächst nochmal auf diesem Weg mein/unser Dank für die Möglichkeit an AMOS teilzunehmen. Wir haben sehr positive Erfahrungen gemacht und waren sehr erfreut über Qualität der Arbeit, der Zusammenarbeit und des Ergebnisses. Auch, wenn wir die entstandene App noch nicht unmittelbar einsetzen können, überlegen wir, wie wir den letzten Feinschliff bis zur “Produktreife“ noch hinkriegen (z.B. im Rahmen eines Praktikums oder einer Werkstudententätigkeit). Insofern sind wir sehr daran interessiert, auch nächstes Jahr wieder an AMOS teilzunehmen. […]

Thank you, Andreas and Senacor, for your guidance and sponsorship!

Students who are interested in continuing the work with Senacor should contact them directly; alternatively you can go through us for this and other opportunities.
