Computer Science, Technical Computer Science, Information Systems Engineering: Mandatory in the module KBS-Bachelor-Projekt


In the recent years, the performance of computer systems has been increased mainly by an increasing specialization. As a result, the use of hardware accelerators such as GPUs, Xeon Phis, or FPGAs becomes more common. Today, these are mainly managed in the userspace rather than the operating system's kernel.

The aim of this year's project is to enable the Linux kernel to manage hardware accelerators and to take them into consideration for scheduling decisions. This shall be done using already existing results of the chair's research. The steps necessary for the realisation shall be examined and prototypically realized for one or more hardware accelerators. 




  • Successful team work
  • Self-organizing skill (distribution of roles, milestones, interaction ...)
  • Introduction to current topics in research


  • Continuous participation
  • Presentation
  • Written paper
  • Successful solution of the task
  • Technical documentation
  • Presentation of the results


There is no special knowledge required. Yet, the students are expected to be willing to work on new concepts. Moreover, we expect the students to have profund programming skills. 

Since the number of participants is limited, there may be the possibility that students will be assigned according to a certain process. This process will be explained in detail during the first meeting on April, 20th.
