Many personalities. Two campuses. One UAS_BO.

In addition to regular teaching, we hold events that serve both to promote cooperation with regional business, civil society, public institutions and as a place for exchange. Depending on the format, the focus is on exchange between students, contact with pupils or contact with experts from business and civil society.

AKIS Seminars

In the winter semester 2021/22, the AKIS seminar will be held for the first time as an overarching course of AKIS. The seminar is planned as a presence seminar to enable an intensive exchange of ideas. The implementation is therefore subject to any applicable restrictions due to the Covid-19 situation.

The seminar is not included in all schedules of the Master's programs, but will take place either on Mondays or Fridays from 16:00 to 18:00 in H9 (location Bochum) or H1 (location Heiligenhaus). Details including lectures will follow in September 2021.

During the seminar, various experts from research and industry will give presentations on topics from the fields of AI, machine learning, data science and their applications. Here, you will certainly come across interesting impulses to delve deeper into individual topics yourself. If you wish to do so, the AKIS seminar plus the corresponding term paper or practical work can be credited to many courses of study at Bochum University of Applied Sciences and Ruhr Master School in the course of study. For this purpose, you regularly participate in the seminar and, following the series of lectures, continue to delve into individual topics under the supervision of a lecturer.

For students of the Bochum University of Applied Sciences, credit can be awarded either through elements of the course or through the Ruhr Master School. Contact persons for questions regarding crediting/implementation in the study programs or the Ruhr Master School are:
