    The internationally active software company has been developing individual solutions since 1999. In the maritime sector, the company provides real-time information services for the maritime industry.
  • JAKOTA Cruise Systems GmbH / FleetMon
    The company has been working in the field of real-time vessel tracking since 2010 and uses 300 million position reports and weather data for analyses every day as a data basis.
  • Deutscher Wetterdienst
    The maritime weather centre of the German Meteorological Service performs tasks to increase the safety of maritime shipping. Meteorological predictions are made with the help of numerical prediction systems.


Especially in the field of logistics, digitization is becoming more and more important, resulting in an ever increasing need for trained personnel in the field of machine learning. In addition to a class, practical projects are to be offered within the qualification program, which enable the students to apply the acquired knowledge in concrete and realistic case studies from the maritime world.

The methodological and content-related focus is on dealing with large amounts of data, their classification and correlation as well as the handling of data uncertainties. Furthermore, a further offer is aimed at university graduates with professional experience in the field of data analysis. In addition, the "MaLiTuP" research project is intended to enable the project partners to expand their own competencies in the field of big data analyses and forecasts.
