Practical Course

Digital Product Innovation and Development

Collaboratively with Technical University Munich (TUM), we offer a brand new practical course. We partner with Netlight, Itestra and Siemens to provide students with the opportunity to take on the role of a tech consultant and experience the whole process of digital product innovation and development.

This hands-on course is designed for students to experience the whole process of digital product innovation and development. Throughout the semester, students will collaborate in groups, each tasked with addressing one distinct industry challenge. These challenges serve as the “starting point” for developing innovative digital products from requirements to prototype. Each team will be guided by a mentor.

Once challenges are selected, teams will work in sprints of two weeks and demonstrate their intermediate results to ensure crafting a compelling business idea that addresses the given challenge. The teams then translate their ideas into a business plan, detailing the product's value proposition, target market, revenue model, and strategic approach prior to elaborating an initial set of requirements. In parallel, students design the architecture of their digital product, outlining the technical framework, features, and the technology stack deemed ideal for implementation. As the semester progresses, students refine their prototypes and prepare to showcase their accomplishments.

The final phase culminates in a joint event where each group presents their prototype, business plan, and implementation strategy. By the end of the course, students will have gained a holistic understanding of the digital product development lifecycle in real-world environments and be well-equipped to navigate the dynamic landscape of digital innovation.
