In the Innovation Lab seminar, students work in small groups to solve practical IT problems in cooperation with multiple regional companies. Representatives of these companies regularly provide students with feedback at the university and take part in networking events. The seminar thus also supports dialogue between regional industry and the university, helping students to interact with world-renowned companies right from the start of their studies. Students learn to work independently, to work in a team, to take responsibility, and to present project results effectively. In addition to creative thinking, the use of skills related to problem-solving, organizing and planning, communication, and project management is encouraged. Course topics change from semester to semester.


After successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

  • work in a team to solve contemporary IT problems
  • plan and organize IT projects under time pressure in a competitive environment
  • use creativity techniques and problem-solving tools to work on the IT projects
  • think creatively to create innovative business and IT solutions
  • look at IT problems from multiple perspectives to develop alternative approaches to solving these problems
  • deliver professional presentations to a demanding audience

  • The course involves interactive seminars with workshops and regular presentations.
  • The faculty and a jury of representatives from regional companies evaluate the students' solutions in terms of their innovativeness and usefulness and provide them with feedback and advice.
  • The e-learning platform Moodle is used throughout the course to disseminate course material and for information and discussion.
