Alumni

Mission

Our mission and objective is to guarantee the iimt Alumni's Network's sustainable development. At the same time, we want to keep our pioneering spirit. We leverage the iimt's activities with inputs from our own professional experience and network. At present, our objectives are:

  • to promote social relationships & contacts among iimt graduates
  • to promote contacts with members of other alumni associations
  • to promote contacts with key players of the industry
  • to act as a supporting network for current iimt participants
  • to involve iimt Alumni members in the development of the iimt

The iimt Alumni's Network will be a platform for all iimt graduates to strengthen their knowledge gained throughout their respective executive programmes. Furthermore, the value-added from networking activities will provide them with great professional opportunities. Besides, multiple social and private aspects are to be promoted. The aim is to establish a basis for a relaxed and informal environment for dialogues.

FRISAM, Understanding Machine Learning with KNIME (date to be confirmed)

by Prof. Dr Martin Huber.
This training is designed for anyone who wants to understand the basic concepts of machine Learning.
This lecture introduces data analytics and machine learning, including applications in the easy-to-use software “KNIME”. Data analytics aims at analysing data to detect informative patterns and draw conclusions about specific processes (like customer behaviour, production, turnover…). One subfield is (supervised) machine learning, which aims at predicting an outcome in the future, e.g. sales, based on analysing patterns of potentially relevant factors (or “predictors”) like price, quality, etc. in past data. This lecture discusses important tools for prediction (such as regression and decision trees), focusing on the intuition of the various methods rather than technical details. The tools are applied to the analysis of commercial data in “KNIME”, which is an open source software that is free of charge. “KNIME” is based on a graphical interface that represents all analytical steps by an intuitive flow chart and does not require programming skills. “KNIME” is therefore ideal for those interested in applying data analytics and machine learning without learning a programming language.

Success stories

Stefano Camuso, CEO Axians & Actemium Switzerland

Stefano Camuso, CEO Axians & Actemium Switzerland

After finishing my studies at the iimt I was immediately equipped with a ready-to-use tool-set for my daily job. The iimt provides students with a good mix of theoretical and practical know-how. The professors and lecturers boast a wide spectrum of knowledge, which allows for insightful discussions during the lessons. Studies at the iimt stand out from the competition in particular for their use of the theoretical material in the case studies, the group works and so on. The iimt has a strong focus on IT & Telecom and as such stands out from similar institutions - if IT & Telecom are what you are interested in, consider joining the iimt. I would like to also pay special thanks to Prof. Dr S. Teufel for her dedication to the iimt over the years.
