AKS assigns and supervises project, bachelor and master theses within its research projects and often in cooperation with industry. The main research areas of the AKS department include:
- Model- and observer-based fault diagnosis techniques, fault-tolerant systems and their application in the automotive industry and on mechatronic systems
- Data-based methods for process monitoring with application in process industries
- Fault-tolerant embedded and interconnected systems.
Video presentation of the department
In the winter semester 2020, no students were allowed to come to the university due to the Corona pandemic and the orientation week had to take place digitally. The video created for this purpose gives you an insight into our work and topics.
The video has raised your interest and you have further questions or would like to know what we are currently working on? Visit us during your own orientation week as part of the department tours, contact us by mail, or sign up for our experiment in the EIT freshman workshop.
