Competency-specific Workshops

Through the increasing occurrence of terms such as SCRUM, CRM or UX/UI in several job advertisements, higher practical competences are being demanded which often can not or not sufficiently be acquired and consolidated within one's studies.

Therefore the University of Wuppertal offers career-specific workshops in cooperation with the TecLab Wuppertal. In these workshops students are being supported in their pratical implementation of skills. The "TecLab Wuppertal" is an initiative of the "Technologiezentrum Wuppertal W-tec GmbH" and provides students with an access to concret application fields of digital technologies.


Sustainable circular economy starts with an idea... Whether as part of a founding team or a company, the generation of ideas can be systematized and applied in a targeted manner to find solutions for sustainable and future-oriented processes. In this workshop on February 3, 2021, ideas were developed under the guidance of Franz Wieck from the Chair of Product Safety and Quality. Various methods were presented and practically applied in small groups with practice-oriented problems. Together, a look at the circular economy was taken and ideas were jointly generated to find solutions for real challenges.

Fit for Future – Business model development in the e-mobility sector

The transformation of transportation is considered one of the greatest challenges on the road to climate neutrality. E-mobility plays a central role in making transport systems sustainable and climate-friendly, although the design of profitable business models in this changing market is proving increasingly confusing. An online workshop on November 24, 2020, collaborated to develop high-yield business models and took a closer look at the e-mobility market. Schaugar Azad, Evgeny Schnittmann (both from the Chair of Electrical Power Supply Technology), Joan Hendrick Rüschkamp (enomo) and the Start-Up Center provided an interesting insight into the e-mobility sector and the topic of business models.

Agility is one of the buzzwords of last year. Job advertisements for project managers appear to increasingly be designed to applicants with knowledge in the agile project management such as Scrum or Kanban. But what does agile project management actually mean? For whom is it suitable and how does it differ to the classical project management? Lukas Atzert and Micheal Voss from BUCS IT showed on the 16th January 2020, how agile project management is used in BUCS IT to master complexe projects iteratively. The basics of agile project management were discussed and first exercises to Scrum and Kanban were tried.
