Master Students Workshop 2015

After developing their projects within the professional environment of Fraunhofer AICOS, the Master students have the opportunity to present their work.

The 2015 edition of the Master Students Workshop took place on the first week of July. Due to the high number of students - this year, 25 students worked and developed their projects at Fraunhofer Portugal – the Workshop was divided into three sessions, each of them consisting of a presentation of the students’ projects, followed by demonstrations.

Real time classification of daily living activities, gamification, behaviour recognition in literacy assessments for Sub-Saharan African communities, development of mobile solutions to help medical professionals and patients to assess the risk of their pathologies, and the risk of diabetic retinopathy, are some of the topics covered by this year’s projects.

The integration of Master students within the Fraunhofer AICOS’ environment intends to provide students the opportunity to experiment a professional atmosphere, facilitating the adjustment from the academic into the industry reality.

As has become usual, Fraunhofer AICOS receives each year Master students, allowing them to develop their work in a professional environment, oriented to the creation of practical solutions. This cooperation results in a win-win relationship since it also allows Fraunhofer AICOS to benefit from these students will for knowledge.


25 Master students have developed their projects at Fraunhofer AICOS. Below is the list of the students and their projects:
