TUM Summer 2013 Lab Course


A lab course was organized at TUM during the summer semester. It was conducted by the researchers involved in the 'Innovative Electronic Control Units' subproject of TU9 Electromobility. Cyber-physical and Embedded system developments in vehicles is believed to be a major job market for Electronic Engineering and Computer Science students. The objective of this course was not only to educate the students, but also to garner students who would be interested to work on the 'Innovative Electronic Control Units' subproject.

There were 15 students, consisting of both Master and Bachelor students, and were divided in groups of 3. Each group had an individual topic. Majority of the students reported to have found the class interesting, informative, and helpful for future endeavors.
