HPI Research School

The HPI Research School for "Service-Oriented Systems Engineering" is the HPI graduate school, founded in 2005. The branches of the graduate school are in Cape Town, Haifa and Nanjing.

Welcome to HPI Research School

The HPI Research School has dedicated itself to the field of “Service-Oriented Systems Engineering.” The focus is on the design and implementation of service-based architectures.

These architectures target various research problems from software engineering, system modeling and analysis, as well as the adaptability and integration of applications.

“Service-Oriented Systems Engineering” represents a synthesis of best practices in object orientation, component-based development, distributed computing, and business process management. It also targets the integration of business needs and IT. The topics of the HPI Research School thus have a unique potential not only in terms of academic research but also in industrial application.

The Supervisors of the Research School

The professors at Hasso Plattner Institute and their research groups are the pillars of support for the HPI Research School. With its interdisciplinary structure, the research school for "Service-Oriented Systems Engineering" connects the research groups of Hasso Plattner Institute and provides a close and fruitful interdisciplinary collaboration.

The following research groups exist at HPI:

Free Language Training

In daily life, just as in research, the right language skills are essential. HPI therefore offers its doctoral candidates the special service of free language training in English and German at the Potsdam campus This program offers participants a means of improving their fluency and practical knowledge of the target language.
