ProCom experts provide practical knowledge for future engineers

As a member of the Aachener Stiftung Energieinformatik, ProCom does a lot for a better future in two ways: For one thing, ProCom promotes the activities of the foundation – it is committed to information and communication technology that benefits the ecological energy supply of households, businesses and transport. On the other hand, ProCom takes on teaching duties at the University of Applied Sciences Aachen, which works closely with the Stiftung Energieinformatik. For the fifth time, ProCom experts will be giving the lectures as part of the master program “Energy Economics and Computer Science“. Since the winter semester 2018/2019, Dr. Ing. Max Scheidt and Dr. Christiane Rosen teaches the students the “Decision supporting IT in the energy industry”.

In this lecture, the two lecturers will give an overview of the marketing channels and show how marketing campaigns can be optimized by decision-supporting IT. The lectures will be complemented by hands-on sessions in which students can work with ProCom’s BoFiT and ITA software solutions. They learn to model systems and markets in IT solutions and to plan the most economical marketing possible. “The newly acquired knowledge will be deepened in an intraday trading game”, explains Dr. med. Rosen. “Further practical relevance is provided by excursions to possible locations of such an IT solution, for example to a power plant or a trading floor.”
