Inhalte der LV

The course provides an introduction to data mining and model-driven decision support systems. Concepts, methods and examples are provided with a focus on acquiring hands-on experience with widely used methods, libraries and software systems.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

After completing the course, students will know how to handle a number of basic data mining methods and how to provide computer-aided decision support. 

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

Continuous assessment courses (PI) requiring attendance according to the rule set of the Master’s program (80%).


Each session combines classic lectures with interactive examples, which provides students with an immediate hands-on experience of various methods. Students are required to prepare material for each lecture and complete homework exercises.  Alongside the course, students will work in groups on a data mining project of their choice, for which separate coaching sessions will be offered and which will be presented to class for peer discussion at the end of the course.
