Rijad Sarić, a final year master student at Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, completed a three-month internship at prestigious Leibniz Research Institute for Innovative Microelectronics (IHP) located in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany.
The primary focus of IHP is to perform research and development in the fields of silicon-based systems, high-frequency integrated circuits and wireless and broadband communication technologies. The institute has four departments: System Design, Circuit Design, Technology and Materials Research. Additionally, the IHP represents a bridge between academia and industry since successful collaboration is established with many universities in the Berlin-Brandenburg region.
Rijad is the third student of International Burch University (IBU) who was given the opportunity to visit the IHP research institute. He was developing real-time object detection and localization algorithm using radar and camera data as a part of the EMPHASE research project. Thanks to the strong support of his thesis supervisor Assist. Prof. Dr. Dejan Jokić, he was mentored by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Miloš Krstić and Dr.-Ing. Markus Ulbricht at the Department of System Design. Moreover, Rijad completed important phases of his master thesis titled "Real-Time Implementation of ANN for Epileptic Seizure Detection on the FPGA" at IHP. This successful story is also supported by Bosnia and Herzegovina Futures Foundation (BHFF) whose main goal is to help outstanding engineering students achieving their excellence and career ambitions.
"It has been an honor collaborating with such experts from the field of Embedded systems who come from all over the world. I have certainly increased my knowledge and enriched my experience during IHP internship. My sincere gratitude goes to Assist. Prof. Dr. Dejan Jokić, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Miloš Krstić and Prof. Dr. Edhem (Eddie) Čustović who helped me to develop my research and professional career", concluded Sarić at the end.
