The master’s degree program requires students to perform an internship in industry (Praxissemester) or in a research group (Forschungssemester). These internships give master students the opportunity to participate in (large) industrial software projects or to get in contact with the scientific research performed in our groups.
For performing an internship in industry (Praxissemester), students are encouraged to get in contact with companies and propose a project by themselves. For performing an internship in one of our research groups (Forschungssemester), students should get in contact with the research group that is offering the project.
Below we provide a list of open projects. Please also check the websites of the research groups and any notices of companies at our department’s information boards for more information. Also feel free to contact us (see contact details in the proposals) should you be interested in performing a project with us.

Reengineering and Improving DA4Java, SERG, Prof. Martin Pinzger
The main goal of this assignment is to reengineer our existing source code visualization tool DA4Java to use a new, open source graphic library. DA4Java is an Eclipse plug-in implemented in Java that uses Hibernate to access the database and a commercial graph library to visualize the graphs. For the new version of DA4Java, we plan to use an open source graph library, e.g., JGraph. As another option, we are also open for a complete re-implementation of the tool using new technologies for storing and visualizing graphs, such as neo4j and/or d3js. Furthermore, we are also open for new features and improvements of DA4Java.
Requirements: Candidates need to a have strong background in Java programming and should be knowledgeable in implementing Eclipse plug-ins.
If you are interested in doing your internship at our research group in a project related to Human-Computer Interaction, please do not hesitate to contact us (David Ahlström, Martin Hitz, or Gerhard Leitner) for further information and arrangements.
Working with us in one of our research projects will give you plenty hands-on experiences and serve as a very good preparation for your upcoming Master Thesis project!
