Block Week Summer Term 2023

  • When:
  • Where: at the three RMS partner universites of applied sciences 
  • Who: Ruhr Master School

Save the date: this term`s Block Week will take place from 08 to 12 May 2023 and allow you to attend exciting electives in a compact way.


Sign up here until 21 April 2023!


08 – 12 May 2023
Some modules already start with an e-leaning unit before that.

At the RMS locations Bochum (HS BO), Dortmund (FH DO) and Gelsenkirchen (WHS).

Because you can compactly and intensively engage in one topic for one week in an interdisciplinary way.
Because it is easier to attend a module from one of the partner universities.
Because you get to know other lecturers and fellow students.
Because you can broaden your horizon.

Please use our registration form to sign up until 21 April 2023.
Some modules have a restricted number of participants. The motto is "first come - first serve"! In case your selected Block Week module takes place at one of the german partner universities, please complete the application form for registration as visiting student.

The following modules are offered during Block Week:

Elective modules in German language



  • Learn procedures to implement data confidentiality, integrity, availability and security controls on networks, servers and applications.
  • Understand security principles and how to develop security policies that comply with cybersecurity laws.
  • Apply skills through practice, using labs and Cisco Packet Tracer ( activities.
  • Get immediate feedback on your work through built-in quizzes and tests.
  • Connect with the global Cisco Networking Academy community.



Die Studierenden erarbeiten sich durch die Durchführung acht aufeinander aufbauender Versuche selbständig einen Einblick in moderne Methoden des digitalen Schaltungsentwurfs. Tutorials erklären die Syntax grundlegender Konstrukte der Hardwarebeschreibungssprache VHDL oder Verilog und die Verwendung von industrieller Entwurfssoftware für die Implementierung von Schaltungen auf einem konfigurierbaren FPGA Logikbaustein.


• Elementares Datenmanagement mit R
• Univariate Deskription
• Bivariate Deskription und Exploration
• Parametrische Verteilungsmodelle
• Gängige parametrische Hypothesentests
• Grundlagen von R Markdown


Elective modules in Englisch language / Spring School Workshops



  • The course Usability Engineering is focusing on the essential methods and tools to evaluate and measure the effectiveness, efficiency and the joy of use with which a user can perform a task with a given system.
  • The reoccurring scheme throughout the course is the User Centered Design Process: students will learn how to observe and specify a context of use, derive requirements from it, create a prototype and evaluate it.
  • For all those parts of the process specific tools and methods will be introduced, for different phases during the software development.
  • Students will learn about the work in the area of usability engineering from a theoretical viewpoint, by studying state-of-the-art research publications, as well as from a practical point of view, by project examples and case studies.
  • These methods and tools will be applied as well as critically evaluated and checked for potential of improvement. 

Module description



Applied embedded systems such as embedded controllers for industrial (i.e. robotics) applications are surrounded from sensors and actuators. Together with other embedded systems they can be groups of networked computers, which have a common goal for their work.

This course gives an overview about the recent state of the art in embedded and cyber physical systems. Each semester, a selected CPS application will be analyzed in depth. This can be from robotic, energy, mobile communications or industrial scenarios (industry 4.0).

The student will learn how to explore and structure a certain application domain and how to map the acquired skills and knowledge to that particular domain. CPS applications will be selected from recent research projects.
