Job Category

Computer science & software engineering


Are you a Computer Science student who is able to translate functional requirements and design in to software designs? Then this internship could be interesting for you!

Background Information

Within the Machine Control group, we are responsible for orchestrating and synchronizing all high-level behavioral actions. We have a large number of modules working in parallel in a large configuration space. Due to the large scale and complexity of the system, there is a need for an abstracted overview of the system.

We need such an overview for multiple reasons. It can be used to improve the overall understanding of the system, and it can be used by experts to quickly diagnose unexpected behavior, considerably reducing investigation time.

Currently, the process of creating such an overview is a manual and labor-intensive task. This project aims to automatically generate an intuitive presentation of the data

Your Assignment

The goal of this assignment is to build a tool presenting an overview of the system based on real machine data tailored to the needs of the experts. In this assignment you will:
- Gather the needs of the experts;
- Ensure the system stores the data required to generate the overview;
- Build a tool or visualization presenting an overview of the system on a timeline.

Your Profile

You are a Bachelor student in your final year or Master apprentice student in Computer Science with the following skills:
- Experienced in C, C++, Python;
- Able to translate functional requirements and design in to software designs.
- Strong communicator;
- Self-propelling attitude.

This is a Bachelor Graduation project or a Master apprentice internship with a duration of minimum 5 months. The start date is as soon as possible.

Please note that we can only consider students who are enrolled at a school for the entire duration of the internship.
