HPI Research Schools

The HPI Research Schools for "Service-Oriented Systems Engineering" and "Data Science and Engineering" are the HPI graduate schools. The branches of the graduate schools are in Cape Town, Haifa and Nanjing. Students enjoy a great research environment and close mentorship by professors and postdocs.

Welcome to HPI Research School

Research School „Service-Oriented Systems Engineering“

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.

Research School „Data Science and Engineering”

The increasing abundance of data in science and in industry creates many challenges and opportunities. Data science has grown to be a foundational discipline in information technology, allowing new insights from data and creating ever more intelligent applications. Simultaneously, it is becoming increasingly difficult to collect, clean and deliver the vast amounts of data and apply and maintain complex data science processes. Targeting these challenges, the discipline of data engineering has become equally foundational.

2019 newly established research school „Data Science and Engineering”  unites top PhD students in all areas of data-driven research and technology, including scalable storage, stream processing, data cleaning, machine learning and deep learning, text processing, data visualization and more. We apply our research to many different use cases across the participating interdisciplinary research groups, joining forces whenever possible.

Students enjoy a great research environment, close mentorship by professors and postdocs of the research school, interaction with many peers, enormous computing power with HPI’s data lab, and significant travel funding.

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 Schools. With its interdisciplinary structure, the research schools connect the research groups of Hasso Plattner Institute and provides a close and fruitful interdisciplinary collaboration.

The following research groups exist at HPI:
