Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS held on the 5th of July a public session of presentations of the work carried on by AICOS Master Students for their MSc dissertations.
Each one of the eighteen students had the opportunity to provide a presentation of their work and achievements to a broad audience, who included AICOS researchers and collaborators, and external guests.
The presentations were held from 9h00 to 12h00 and from 14h00 to 17h00. Between 12h00 and 13h00, a session of demonstrations allowed the audience to interact more directly with the work developed by the students.
In this session, the students presented the practical applications of their work, from which resulted solutions for areas such as Fall Prevention, Human Activity Prediction, Motion-based physical rehabilitation games, among others.
These MSc theses were developed having in mind the Fraunhofer AICOS orientation for “Research of Practical Utility” and provided very useful results and solutions which might be applied to AICOS’ projects such as Mover, SmartCompanion, EnAware, FUSAMI and others.
This initiative, organized by AICOS for the second year, intends to publicly present the work of its Master students, with the objective of getting the attention of researchers, students and partner institutions.
Since its creation in 2008, Fraunhofer AICOS has received Master students, allowing them to develop their work in a professional environment, oriented to the creation of practical solutions; and benefiting from these students expertise and knowledge, thus resulting in a win-win relationship.
In general, all of AICOS students finish their MSc thesis with excellent grades, and are able to find a job afterwards, whether in AICOS, in industry or in other institutions.
