Graz, AT
vor 5 Tg.

AVL is the world’s largest independent company for development, simulation and testing in the automotive industry, and in other sectors.

As a global technology leader, AVL provides concepts, solutions and methodologies in the fields of e-mobility, ADAS and autonomous driving, vehicle integration, digitalization, virtualization, Big Data, and much more.

We offer a thesis with the topic of


  • Analysis of engine control system for genset application (with available plant model & simulation environment)
  • Definition of control objective, requirements and boundary conditions together with your AVL supervisor
  • Selection of appropriate control plant model and evaluation of control model uncertainty
  • Control model generation and parameter estimation of approximated model
  • Design of the Control system, based on chosen approximate model using the Sliding Mode Control approach
  • Performance validation and benchmark (to existing controller) test based on appropriate test cases
  • Robustness Analysis and Control Optimization within the uncertainty conditions (Model uncertainties, disturbances, )
  • Documentation and presentation of the results as well as short training of engineers on control model and controller
  • parametrization workflow

  • General knowledge of control theory and knowledge in Matlab / Simulink tool
  • Technical knowledge in engine and powertrain systems beneficial
  • You like to perform your master thesis within an innovative team and you are highly motivated to solve complex
  • control problems
  • Interested to bring theoretical background knowledge into practice
  • Good communication skills and English knowledge
  • Teamwork skills as well as ability to work independently on challenging technical topics

    Control Engineering, Electrical or Mechanical Engineer or a similar filed of study with focus and interest on control


    The successful completion of the thesis is remunerated with a one-time fee of EUR €2,600.00 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
