Kickoff of M-Lab 2013 with 4 customers, 20 students, and 5 instructors
After intensive iOS and Android tutorials held for the students last week, we had today the kickoff of the lighthouse teaching project M-Lab 2013. In total 20 students, 4 companies, and 5 instructors are participating in this project. This year we have the following iOS and Android projects:
- Capgemini Germany: Sales Support of High-End Financial Products
- I.C.H.N. GmbH: Community Assessment of Telecommunication Service Quality
- Presentec GmbH: Social and Sailing Navigation
- Volkswagen AG: Remote Control for an in-car Infotainment System
After a short introduction to the course and teaching goals by the professor, the four customers presented their problem statements and expectations to the students. The students selected their preferred projects by filling an online survey. At the end we had a small get together party with drinks and pizza! Also 7 guests came to the kickoff today.
Now the students are ready to use techniques and methods of Software Engineering and Mobile Services and work together on their projects and deliver the products in 3 months.
Looking forward for great projects!
The detailed timetable for the seminars can be found on the website.
