Events and projects
Want to learn more about DSA? Take the opportunity to meet us personally at the 'Nacht der Unternehmen', the bonding AutomotiveDay or other recruiting events.
Inform yourself about details of our various projects, in which, for example, we're committed to the engineering talents of tomorrow or to facing the challenges of the future.
Hackathon of TGZ and Future Lab Aachen
We Support Tomorrow’s Young Engineers
IT-enthusiastic students can get to know us at the annual hackathon of the Transfer and Gründerzentrum (TGZ) of the RWTH Aachen. In an inspiring founder garage atmosphere and with free catering, students of all disciplines can dedicate themselves to exciting coding tasks in small teams. At the end of the workshop, the best and most creative solutions are rewarded with winners’ prizes.
During the workshop, there are no limits to creativity—and this leads to many exciting ideas and solutions each year.
You can find further big and small actions and events about science on Future Lab Aachen’s website.
How Creative Ideas Become Innovative Products for the Future
Searching new solutions, testing, examining and at the same time still get a little more efficient: With our internal "IdeaWorks" projects, we have found a new way to turn clever ideas into reality and in doing so to face the challenges of the future.
Here, we need to develop innovative solutions for the future in an agile working team of diverse creative ideas—from building the first prototype to finalizing the new product. For example, our team developed a concept for a mobile testing system in which production employees are electronically guided through various production processes in the plant using portable computer systems, so-called wearables (e.g. smartglasses, smartwatches) or tablets. The first prototypes have already been presented at various trade fairs.
Cooperations with Local Universities
For several years, DSA cooperates very closely with the RWTH Aachen as well as the FH Aachen. Within this framework, we carry out various practical projects together with the students, propose topics for degree theses and offer opportunities for internships. In guest lectures and practical workshops, we show the students how what they have learned theoretically can be put into practice, ensuring a close interlocking of lecture content with the requirements of practice.
Often, the mutual commitment for the students leads to a later professional career at DSA.
As a partner of the Computer Science Department of the RWTH Aachen University, we are gold sponsor at the annual Summer Festival and Day of Computer Science. Twice a year, we award the best master thesis with the DSA Master Award, which is endowed with a cash prize of 750 Euro.
On Wednesday, November 3, 2021, we look forward to many visitors at our booth and will be happy to answer all questions about the job areas and starting opportunities as well as career prospects at DSA.
"Full speed towards the job" - That was the motto of this year's Nacht der Unternehmen at the Technology Center in Aachen. And DSA participated again on October 26 at the Technology Center in Dennewartstraße.
We are pleased to be back at the bonding AutomotiveDay on September 15, 2021 to give visitors insights into job opportunities at DSA
Once again, we welcome our IT junior staff who started their training at DSA on August 1, 2021. As a globally operating company, we offer young people two future-oriented training options with a wide range of potential career opportunities.
DSA is represented at both events with a virtual booth and is available for personal exchange via video chat during the fair.
This year again, DSA welcomes students from different master courses in computer science and electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen University to a three-day practice workshop. Like many other events, this year's workshop will take place online.
On Thursday, April 22nd, you have the chance to meet us at this year's 'Nacht der Unternehmen' in the Technologiezentrum Aachen. On this evening, companies from the region again show interesting fields of work in and around Aachen.
At the beginning of December 2020 once again the opportunity had finally come. In the context of this year's 'Day of Computer Science' at RWTH Aachen University, DSA awarded a prize to Jan Svejda for his outstanding master thesis on the topic "Automatic Verification of C-Programs".
Once again DSA supports the Graduate Ceremony of the Department of Computer Science at the RWTH Aachen University as gold sponsor. For the first time, the event takes place virtually.
Four future software specialists started their training at DSA on August 1, 2020 to learn the basics for the development of innovative and customer-specific communication solutions for vehicle electronics. Welcome at DSA!
