Welcome on the homepage of the chair "Internet Technologies and Systems" of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel and his team. We like to inform you about our teaching and ongoing research activities in security, knowledge engineering, innovation and design thinking research.
The chair of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel offers courses in the following disciplines: Internet and Web Technologies, (Discrete) Mathematics and Logic, IT Security and Internet Security, Complexity Theory and Information Security as well as Design Thinking.
The research of the team of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel in the field of knowledge management and engineering focus on the challenging question, how to manage the mass of digital data, so-called "big data", from Internet and other sources in order to generate new knowledge.
Here you can find information about our teaching and ongoing research activities in security engineering, learning & knowledge tech and innovation & design thinking research. You can also get informed about our tele-teaching projects openHPI and tele-TASK, our web portals and blogs, online labs & systems, and other professional activities. Feel free to download our publications and tele-lectures, or access our various research data bases.
The department "Internet Technologies and Systems" headed by Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel aims to provide an excellent education to the students of the Hasso Plattner Institute and a stimulating and ambitious research environment for Ph.D. students from allover the world, to achieve significant scientific results in IT-systems engineering, particularly in the field of Internet technologies and systems, worth to be published in internationally leading journals and conferences, and to design innovative IT tools and systems that forward digital transformation and improve daily live in our changing world.
Information about our Research Work
The research at the chair of Prof. Dr. Christoph Meinel focuses on investigation of scientific principles, methodes and technologies to design and implement novel Internet technologies and innovative Internet-based IT-systems [more].
