Master Project (Informatics, Intelligent Adaptive Systems, Information Systems, ITMC)
STINE-ID: 64-451 Masterprojekt Mobile Services Lab (M-Lab)
Prof. Dr. Walid Maalej
In this “light-house course” student teams will develop real innovative Apps for real customers from industry, under real project conditions, and using the newest technology.
In addition to software engineering concepts like object oriented analysis, design, and realization of GUI based applications, students will learn the key concepts of usability engineering, context awareness, and service management. Real industrial partners provide their problem statements. Students get real team and project experience while actually using real data and working tightly together with their customer.
Students try out techniques and methods of Software Engineering and Mobile Service Management. They make valuable experiences in teamwork, project management, and communication with customer. As underlying technology students will use mobile technologies and can choose between iOS (iPhone and iPad) or Android depending on the customers’ requirements and students preferences. Previously, these projects have led to products in App Stores, company spin-offs, or acquisitions by the customers.
You can find the trailers of the past M-Lab projects on our Youtube Channel.
This year we have excellent innovative projects with a variety of customers including large international renowned companies. The projects are as usual top secret and will be officially announced during the kickoff session. At the kickoff, customers will present the project ideas and you we will be able to indicate your project preference via an online poll.

The main subject of each session will be presented in the end of each session by a teaching assistant. The week after, you will present the topic with regard to your current project status. In the weekly seminar, each team will have to prepare and give a 15-minute presentation on each subject of the seminar. Students will learn about important topics of software engineering with special focus on mobile services.

The project has three main milestones:
Teams independently schedule their meetings with their costumers and instructors. They have to negotiate and implement the requirements with their customer.
The weekly material can be accessed on MIN-CommSy.
Please choose your project preferences in the following survey. The survey will start after the kickoff at 6 pm.
