Students / Stages / Internships
Our labs host students and interns working on stages and experimental thesis during the whole year. The topics dealt with can be split in two macro-areas: Embedded Electronic - related to the core business of the company - and Management Information System, which is part of the company IT infrastructure.
Our proposals for students/interns/graduating students
In this page we'll present specific proposals and some examples of past thesis. We would like to emphasize that, due to the characteristics of our business, the range of interesting topics (technologies, scientific , applications) is huge, and it's not possible to prepare formal proposals for each. For this reason, if you are evaluating the possibility of carrying out an internship or a thesis with us, but you can't find a proposal that perfectly matches your interests, we suggest you to contact us through the email address you'll find below. Thus, we'll be able to evaluate the possibility of finding a topic that is interesting for both of us.
Please note that our proposals can be accessed by both junior and senior graduating students. The topic will be adjusted to fit the knowledge and skills acquired by the students. Each topic, on student suggestion, can be adapted to get closer to the research area of the student's supervisor. The proposals will be evaluated to check their compatibility with the targets of the company. We suggest interested students contact the company, to go deeper into the matter and get the whole picture.
Finally, we report that experimental thesis are an effective instrument for recruitment of new employees. This is confirmed by the fact that, when writing this document (February 2013), 60% of the people of the R&D department of DAVE Embedded Systems have been employed immediately after they completed their thesis in our labs.
