REINFORCEMENT LEARNING FOR PROJECTION ALIGNMENT CONTROL AT IMS MASTER THESIS
Yes, I'm interested!
Timeline: start as soon as possible
Type of work: MSc Thesis: The goal of the assignment is modeling and controlling a specific system given by the client IMS.

Location: IMS Almelo / Perron 038 Zwolle
Team: IMS Research & Development

Skills needed:
- 3D modeling
- Optimization + Machine Learning
- Systems Control

Brief explanation: Automotive lighting systems such as headlights and side-projectors are becoming more intelligent. For example, adaptive beam shaping and high definition has been made possible by technological advances regarding resolution, speed, definition, sharpness, contrast, color of the illumination systems.This increasing complexity leads to new demands for both manufacturing and validation. Both internal product specifications and external regulations demand stringent and extensive functional analysis. Light projection quality analysis is one of the most important aspects therein. Projection quality (PQ) analysis system specifications include total analysis time, compactness, projection angles range, intensity range and resolution, near-field or far-field analysis. 
A supervisor from IMS will be attached with the project to provide experience with the setup and support with the thesis. A daily supervisor will also be provided by Fraunhofer Project Center at the University of Twente to support with the theoretical and technical aspects of the thesis. The master thesis will be part of the PRISMA project, a consortium project around Computer Vision applications, to which more information can be provided on request.

Communication Science Bachelor Thesis with FEST
Yes, I'm interested!
Timeline: 
- Start asap
- Duration of one quartile
Type of Work: Bachelor Thesis
Use Case: 
As students (both local and international) from the University of Twente graduate, they leave the Twenteregion which has led to a decline in the skill workforce for this region. There could be multiple reasons as
to why. One of them would be to seek work opportunities. Currently the university does not have a
structured program that connects students to industries in the region whether it is through internship
placement or industry projects.

FEST aims to provide a better system that connects students to local companies, through the process of
carrying out projects than is currently available in UT. While exploring the possibility of connecting with
students and companies through an online platform, user testing, data collection and processing is needed.

Student Requirement:
- Open to collaboration with others and want to learn how to express your ideas to a multidisciplinary team.
- Interested in data gathering/ processing
- Interested in customer communication
- Proactive and deadline oriented.
- Has great communication skills in English and/or Dutch.

Brief explanation: Internal research on the possible value creation of student and company connection can only go so far in validating a project. It is crucial to get real-life data on the value creation possibilities for students as well
as companies. There is also a need to collect and process data in real-time in order to facilitate the
proper matching of a student to company and vice versa. The bachelor assignment is following preliminary research on the possible value creation of an online platform.

MSc Internship SIM Center for Additive Manufacturing
Yes, I'm interested!
Timeline: Starting date February is an option. Preferable to start March/June, full time internship for at least three months, preferably five.
Type of work: Master thesies

Brief description: This Master thesis will be executed at Aeronamic as part of the 3D2SKY project. The goal of the 3D2SKY project is to print certifiable products for Aerospace applications with Laser-Powder Bed Fusion. Within the project, an EOS M290 machine and several other equipment around the printing process have been acquired and are available for experimentation purposes.

Furthermore, Simufact additive suite and Siemens NX are available for simulation purposes. As Aeronamic’s strategy is to have all design and manufacturing engineering capabilities contained in a single software environment, Aeronamic invested in Siemens NX AM CAM to expand the existing Siemens NX CAD/CAM infrastructure.

Additionally, Aeronamic is looking to integrate simulation of print jobs with Simcenter into the Siemens environment. Goal is to investigate Simcenter’s capabilities and to evaluate whether the software is fit for purpose and define gaps. Comparison with print jobs (to be) performed and/or existing simulations performed in Simufact may be part of the investigation.
 
The intended global structure of the project will be:
-  Understanding how the simulation works. Which assumptions are done (e.g. uniform temperature distribution vs. very high local temperatures in reality) that affect the accuracy.
- Select or design test geometries to evaluate residual stress, distortion and warpage
- Compare calculated distortion with measured distortion
- Predict recoater crashes
- Optionally compare Simcenter results with Simufact
- Evaluate algorithms within Simcenter which (iteratively) compensate geometry for distortion
