Student Work

Please send an email to Holger Fröning for specific questions or further information on possible topics, depending on the students experience and interest. Proposals are also welcome.

In general, this group focuses on GPU Computing, in particular on communication between distributed GPUs. If you have a strong background in CUDA and solid knowledge in C/C++, MPI and Linux we'd be happy to discuss possible projects with you!

We are open for project work (Studienarbeit), student talks (BSc and MSc level) and BSc & MSc theses.

Advanced Seminar "Computer Engineering"

A repository of past talks and report can be found here: link
