The seminar is research-oriented but might include the development and documentation of an IS-artifact or prototype. Existing programming skills are not mandatory. Rather, basic programming skills will be learned during the seminar in cooperation with your supervisor(s). A mandatory block course will cover the foundations of scientific research.
