Fraunhofer-Institut für Produktionstechnologie IPT

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft ( currently operates 75 institutes and research
institutions throughout Germany and is the world’s leading applied research organization. Around
29,000 employees work with an annual research budget of 2.8 billion euros.
Machine learning (ML) has already been used in many applications to help optimizing production
processes. ML can be used in the production of engine components to achieve higher component quality.
For this reason, the thesis aims to automatically detect anomalies based on real acquired data of a milling
process. Accurate detection of anomalies can be used to adjust process parameters, resulting in higher
accuracies and thus higher product quality.

What you will do

  • Familiarization with the state of the art in ML-based anomaly detection
  • Implementation and benchmarking of different ML models
  • Uncertainty quantification of ML models in production
  • Evaluation and documentation of the results

What you bring to the table

  • You are studying mechanical engineering, computer science, industrial engineering, or a
    comparable subject
  • Initial experience in the field of machine learning is advantageous
  • A high degree of initiative and team spirit
  • Very good language skills in English

What you can expect

  • Ideal conditions for practical experience alongside your studies
  • Professional supervision and collaboration in a dedicated team
  • A state-of-the-art machine park equipped with edge cloud systems and 5G infrastructure
  • Flexible working to combine study and job in the best possible way

Notice: You can write your project work or thesis with us immediately and in direct cooperation with
the Chair of Metrology and Quality Management. According to the guidelines of the RWTH Aachen
University, the internship is preferably to be completed at a manufacturing company and can only take
place with us in exceptional cases.
