As Austria's largest research and technology organisation for applied research, we are dedicated to make substantial contributions to solving the major challenges of our time, climate change and digitisation. To achieve our goals, we rely on our specific research, development and technology competencies, which are the basis of our commitment to excellence in all areas. With our open culture of innovation and our motivated, international teams, we are working to position AIT as Austria's leading research institution at the highest international level and to make a positive contribution to the economy and society.

The Center for Digital Safety & Security is looking for new Ingenious Partner for our location in Vienna. The research field Enabling Digital Technologies within the Competence Unit for Security and Communication Technologies is leading in applied 5G and beyond research of advanced reliable wireless joint communication and sensing systems for time sensitive use cases in the domain of railways, street transport, industrial automation and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).





In this master thesis project, you will work on advanced numerical model for site-specific radio channel representation.

You will focus on the technical development of new capabilities of the AIT ray tracer software using a high performance NVIDIA GPU.

The main goal of this master thesis is to extend the AIT ray tracer to include polarization, general geometries and dynamic ray tracing capabilities.

Under the guidance of our team, you will extend an existing numerical simulation system and validate it with empirical measurement data.

You will broaden your knowledge and skills in the field of advanced radio channel modelling.

You will be trained in scientific work. If you are successful, you may continue as a Ph.D. student, publish the achieved results and present them at a scientific conference.


Your qualifications as an Ingenious Partner:

Ongoing master's studies in Electrical Engineering, Wireless Communications and Sensing, Computational Science, or related fields.

Knowledge on mathematical models for radio wave propagation modeling

Experience with parallel programming on NVIDIA GPUs

You are excited about application-oriented challenges in wireless communication and sensing systems

High level of commitment and ability to work in an international team.

Good language skills in German or English (written & spoken).


What to expect:

Duration of the Master project: 6 months

EUR 968 gross per month, for 20 h / week based on the collective agreement. In addition to numerous events, seminars and networking opportunities, there will be additional company benefits.

At AIT we supervise master students from local and international universities - As a research institution, we are familiar with the execution of master theses, and we are looking forward to supporting you accordingly!

At AIT diversity and inclusion are of great importance. This is why we strive to inspire women to join our teams in the field of technology. We welcome applications from women, who will be given preference in case of equal qualifications after taking into account all relevant facts and circumstances of all applications.

Please submit your documents including your CV, cover letter and your certificates (Transcript of records) online.
