Elective courses build on highly innovative course formats, focusing on practical relevance and upcoming trends. Let highly motivated and interdisciplinary teams generate tangible outcomes within a short timeframe.

How Electives & Hackathons work

Every semester, the CDTM offers 4-5 elective courses to our highly motivated students. Just like our core courses, all our elective courses are conducted together with partners from the industry or research, to tackle their relevant problems.

Elective courses are designed to complement the core courses by offering students the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in an area of their choice. The course format can either range from a one-week hackathon to several sessions spread across the semester or semester break.

We are open to your suggestions and the topics you would like to bring to the Center! The courses are continuously adapted to changing technologies and requirements.
