Internships, BSc/MSc/HiWi subjects

During your studies, you can contribute to our ongoing research projects. Join us in pushing the limits of what is technically feasible and be part of breaking new ground together. We offer a variety of challenging and practice-oriented topics as internships, bachelor’s or master’s theses or as student assistants (paid HiWi jobs). You will analyse important scientific preliminary questions and support the project teams with development activities.

Depending on your specialist expertise and the content of the project, it is possible to combine scientific work at IMMS on a flexible part-time basis with a Master’s qualification after completing your Bachelor’s degree. This parallel training on the job in a dynamic environment networked with industry is ideal for a career start in application-oriented research and paves the way for a career at IMMS, for a PhD or entry into industry.

The time periods of two to six months normally available for completing a Bachelor’s or Master’s dissertation are usually much too short to enable students to work on complex engineering tasks like developing a microelectronic circuit from schematic design through to production and measurement.

Therefore, our students frequently take up our invitation to get involved early in their degree course by taking a student research assistant or internship position with us. In these they learn the practical skills they will need in addressing real engineering problems in microelectronics, electronic system design and mechatronics they will face when doing their BSc and MSc at IMMS.

This means that our students get a particularly comprehensive and realistic insight into both technical content and management of engineering projects over time. On occasion, the long-term relationships the students make with us lead to a full-scale research job at IMMS later.

You will be able to call on our whole infrastructure in your work. We have a internationally competitive infrastructure, fully meeting industrial norms, supporting the design of and experimentation on electronic and mechatronic systems, and underpinning our and your research work and the preliminary qualification processes.

Here you can find our current list of topics

You can filter the following topics according to your interests. Many of the topics are flexible in terms of start and duration or can be integrated into different periods of study. Many of them can be arranged as internships, bachelor’s or master’s theses or as paid student job (HiWi). In contrast to the vacancies, please apply by e-mail directly to the contact person named in the topic.
