This class teaches you how to perform research. According to the Informatik Prüfungsordnung your Bachelor or Master thesis has to be scientific work, and this class teaches you how to do it. The class consists of a weekly lecture (2 SWS) and weekly exercises (2-4 SWS). If you decide to write a research paper, the class can also be used for the Praktikum module (Bachelor) or Projekt module (Master), totaling 10 ECTS.
The weekly lecture discusses the following topics:
As part of the exercises, students will be given the chance to create a research hypothesis, develop a validation strategy, carry out the validation, and write up the results as a research paper, just like they would do for their Master Thesis. We will provide the data and help with the hypothesis creation and validation process. This exercise work is probably a student's best preparation for a successful Bachelor or Master Thesis.
The class language is English and a research paper will have to be written in English. The exercises will involve both qualitative and quantitative data analysis; thus, math and programming skills are needed.
