Internship followed by a Master Thesis

The Chair of Business Administration of the Universität des Saarlandes and the Infineon Technologies AG are looking for an interested and qualified student to conduct his/her Internship followed by a Master Thesis on the topic Artificial Intelligence by Dynamic Hysteresis Application on a Supply Chain Segmentation Process

The focus of the thesis is the application of artificial intelligence via a dynamic hysteresis application for the segmentation of Infineon’s supply chain. First a two month internship should investigate supply chain segmentation processes by hysteresis implementations.

This thesis is suitable for business administration and engineering students with a major in the area of operations and supply chain management.

Infineon Technologies AG as one of Europe’s second-largest semiconductor manufacturer is responsible for the development of semiconductors and systems for automotive, industrial and multimarket sectors, chip card, and security products.
