Prodrive Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class electronics. It comprises over 1300 employees and is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe. Our organization is mostly based on two groups: Development and Operations. The Development department is oriented at developing first-class electronic, mechanic and software solutions. The operations department is responsible for production, assembly, testing and life-cycle-management of electronic products and systems in the range of 1 to more than a million pieces per year.
Developers within Prodrive Technologies use their company workstations for simulating designs. With the ever growing need for more designs and products, time spent waiting for simulation results should be reduced but the quality must be maintained. With the use of a supercomputing solution the simulation time decreases and developers have more time to focus on actual design.
Currently we are looking into the possibilities to purchase or build our own supercomputing solution. Multiple tools must be able to gain advantage with the use of such a distributed computing resource. You will be responsible for investigating the possibilities with the use of a super computer within the current stack of software tools for design and implementation of the chosen solution.
- Pre-study document (literature study) of possible solutions.
- Design of chosen solutions.
- Implementation of chosen solutions.
- Tests to verify the implementation.
Important note: all our graduation assignments are dependent on time. Please see them as an example of the many great things you can do at Prodrive Technologies. If you have the same passion for technology as we do, we always have an assignment for you!
Benefits as a student
Next to the benefits which are true for every Prodriver that are listed below, some special benefits must be highlighted for students. First of all, you will be treated as a real Prodriver. Your opinion and ideas will be heard and treated as full. Next to this you will get the chance to work with colleagues with a very high level of knowledge in their field and get the chance to use our world class lab and production facilities for your graduation assignment.
