With 11,500 employees worldwide, AVL is the world's largest independent company for the development, simulation and testing of powertrain systems (hybrid, combustion engine, transmission, electric drive, batteries, fuel cell and control technology) for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, construction, large engines and their integration into the vehicle. In this bachelor thesis it is intended to develop a framework / methodology to pre-calibrate safety critical vehicle functions and powertrain component functions. With this methodology it shall be possible to evaluate if safety related boundary conditions are met. Based on requirements, it is within the scope of the thesis, to model the information flow and to prove the fulfillment of pre-defined success criteria.


  • Develop a methodology for setting up a timing analysis simulation environment
  • Setup of timing model based on a real-world example
  • Identification of reaction chains (input fault → output reaction)
  • Analysis of contributing factors (e.g. which factor has most impact on the violation of the success criteria)
  • Proof of concept
  • Documenting results

Fields of study

  • Software engineering, Control engineering or comparable


  • Team spirit, strong analytical and problem solving skills, flexibility and good English
  • Simulation skills
  • Tool skills (e.g. Matlab Simulink)
  • Knowledge of calibration tools and processes is a plus

Remuneration: The successful completion of the thesis is remunerated with a one-time fee of EUR 1,700 before tax. According to the Austrian Employment of Foreign Nationals Act it is unfortunately not possible to assign graduate work to third-country citizens (Non-EU citizens) who study at a university abroad.
