Learning Outcomes

Students acquire methods and skills to solve a scientific question in the area of network information systems. They can formulate scientific questions as well as to proof or disprove a hypothesis in this field. In particular, they can systematically produce and publish results to validate the thesis and derive conclusions for further studies in this research area. Furthermore, students are able to pursue research approaches independently and to critically review related work in this field.


Network information systems are continuously improved to connect an ever-increasing number of computing devices and to fulfil a wide range of different requirements. In particular, higher throughput, lower latency, and higher reliability paved the the way for future application scenarios, e.g., augmented reality, autonomous driving, and reliable industrial communication. However, new use cases often come with new requirements implying that wireless communication systems need to be adapted continuously. In the project, students will develop solutions for selected topics in the area of network information systems. Students work with a member of our institute on a current research topic. In particular, students will design, implement, and evaluate prototypes improving network information systems.

Description of Teaching and Learning Methods

Topics will be individually determined based on skills and capacity. A researcher of our group will supervise the project. We expect students to have prior experience in network information systems. Moreover, good analytical and programming skills are required. Students realize a prototype in the area of network information systems. Students will write a technical report and present their results.
