  • 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 13 to 17 May 2024 and allow you to attend exciting electives in a compact way.


Sign up here until 16 April 2024 (7 April for XR-RMS)!


13 – 17 May 2024
Some modules already start with an e-leaning unit before that.

At the RMS locations Bochum (HS BO), Dortmund (FH DO) and Westfällische Hochschule (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 16 April 2024.
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.

Elective modules in Englisch language


  • 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.
