Student assistant, business computing

Stu­dent assis­tant at Depart­ment of Busi­ness com­put­ing, Pro­fes­sor Dr. Karl Kurbel (1995 – 2000)

Sci­en­tific research and pub­li­ca­tions, pub­li­ca­tion and web­site design, soft­ware devel­op­ment, event orga­ni­za­tion and uni­ver­sity teaching.

Dur­ing my study of busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion and cul­tural sci­ences at the Euro­pean Uni­ver­sity Viad­rina in Frank­furt (Oder), Ger­many, I worked part-time as stu­dent assis­tant at the busi­ness com­put­ing depart­ment. Dur­ing my five-years stay there, I worked in sev­eral research projects in busi­ness com­put­ing and designed pub­li­ca­tions of the depart­ment. My research assign­ments included the design and devel­op­ment of data­base solu­tions (Ora­cle, Gupta), pro­gram­ming (Visual Basic, Java), data analy­sis. I gave lec­tures and worked as a tutor in courses given by Pro­fes­sor Karl Kurbel, the head of the depart­ment. The courses included: Visual Basic Pro­gram­ming and Appli­ca­tions and Inter­net Devel­op­ment Tools. I have co-authored a sci­en­tific paper about Inter­net mul­ti­me­dia technologies.

I devel­oped the visual iden­tity of the depart­ment, designed and laid out sci­en­tific papers, Pow­er­Point pre­sen­ta­tions. I also designed sig­nage for a con­fer­ence orga­nized by the depart­ment. I designed and pro­grammed the web­site of the depart­ment as well as of VGU (Vir­tual Global Uni­ver­sity), an online learn­ing entity headed by Pro­fes­sor Kurbel. Finally, I cre­ated illus­tra­tions for sev­eral sci­en­tific papers and two of Pro­fes­sor Kurbel’s books: ‘Pro­duk­tion­s­pla­nung und Pro­duk­tion­ss­teuerung’ (Pro­duc­tion plan­ning and con­trol) and ‘Pro­gram­mierung und Soft­waretech­nik’ (Pro­gram­ming and soft­ware technology).
