IuE Summer of Code 2015

The IuE Summer of Code is a summer internship program for dedicated TU Wien students focusing on free open source software development (and related support tasks, e.g., testing, visualization, examples, web development) for the free open source software projects currently under development at the Institute for Microelectronics, TU Wien. Flexible projects of varying run-times are given out (or are created from scratch based on ideas from a student) for which either a paycheck or ECTS can be collected. The students are supposed to show their dedication and skills during a selection period, after which the best can claim a project and work on it over the summer months (usually between 2 to 3 months) whilst being mentored by our team.

  • Distributed Semiconductor Device Meshing
  • Semiconductor Device Python Interface
  • Fast Fourier Transform on Graphics Processing Units
  • Eigenvalue Computations on Graphics Processing Units

Required Skills

Almost all our projects require skills in common aspects of GNU/Linux software development and documentation. Therefore, all prospective students are supposed to be skilled in these areas (at least to some degree). Regardless, all students are encouraged to read the following sections and make themselves familiar with the individual topics, especially focusing on areas relevant for the project of interest:
