Lectures

Darmstadt University (h_da)

Master

Information Visualization (Master)

The students of the module will be able to explain visual perception and processing of visual information using established models, explain the reference model of information visualization and compare it with other models, explain the process of visual exploration and decision-making, and judge by example, visual layouts based on given tasks and deploy data and assess adequate deployment, use visual variables based on data types, and develop interactive visualizations of abstract data.

User-Centered Design (Master)

After attending the event, the students will be familiar with the principles and methods of user-centered development and will be able to assess at what point in the project they should best be used. They understand human visual, motor and cognitive abilities and their relevance to design and can apply them. They can assess interface elements and their suitability for specific problems and are able to design such elements themselves. They know the established methods of prototyping and can apply them for various projects and projects. Furthermore, they know the most common methods for performing qualitative and empirical evaluation methods and are able to design and carry out tests independently.

Visual Analytics (Master)

The students of the module can explain the differences between information visualization, graphic design and visual analytics, explain the reference models of visual analytics, explain elementary methods of data mining, clustering and information extraction, independently deal with current primary literature and the methods described there for the use of Assess complex analytical tasks, explain the process of visual exploration and decision-making, and give examples.

Visual Forecast Analytics (Master)

The students of the module will be able to explain visual perception and processing of visual information using established models, explain the reference model of information visualization and compare it with other models, explain the process of visual exploration and decision making, and give examples, visual layouts for use in the field Use and evaluate the field of visual analysis for future forecasts and independently develop interactive visual forecast analytics systems.

Advanced Seminar: Visual Analytics for Smart Manufacturing and Trend Analysis

Due to the increasing digitization, analyzes are a constant necessity, which also applies to the identification of errors, problems or opportunities for improvement. With visual analytics, the combination of algorithmic and massive calculation opportunities of computer-based systems on the one side as well as the visual and cognitive skills of the users on the other side are used together. The seminar focuses on the use of visual analytics in the two current areas of smart manufacturing and trend analysis. On behalf of the given task, current approaches, methods and implementations should be researched and examined. The goal should be a scientific elaboration based on empirical and scientific standards.

Bachelor

Information Management (Bachelor)

The aim of the module is the acquisition of advanced knowledge in information management, especially in basic questions of the information economy, information systems and technology and innovation management. The learning outcome is the understanding of the processes and in the operational information management and the acquisition of competences in the use of information in an entrepreneurial context. This includes the ability to solve strategic, technical, organizational and legal problems in the use of information applications in companies and organizations.

Foundations of Data Visualization (Bachelor)

The objective of the module is the acquisition of basic knowledge of models and methods of data visualization. Different methods of data visualization are treated, which should lead to an extended competence transfer for the development of simple visualizations.

Project Management (Bachelor)

The aim of the module is the acquisition of basic knowledge of processes, models and procedures of project management. Different perspectives of the project management are treated, which should lead to an extended competence mediation for the realization of complex projects.

Data Visualization Applications (Bachelor)

The objective of the module is the acquisition of basic knowledge of models and methods of data visualization. Different methods of data visualization are discussed, which should lead to an extended competence transfer for the development of visualizations.

Human-Information Interaction (Bachelor)

The aim of the module is the acquisition of advanced knowledge of the processes, models and methods of Human-Information Interaction.
