Course and Relation between Seminar and Project

The seminar is offered for Bachelor students to achieve an insight into selected topics and subdomains of the research area "Data and Knowledge Engineering" with an emphasis on "Intelligent Interactive Information Systems". The assignment is to become acquainted with a chosen subdomain, hold a presentation and write a paper about this topic. In the end the Bachelor students receive 2SWS/3ECTS.
