ARUR_logoY Soft Applied Research and University Relations (ARUR) is a program under which we ysofters:

  • Supervise and consult students working on their theses
  • Support student research positions at research laboratories
  • Offer student internships
  • Give lectures at universities
  • Organize and support student events

This post provides statistics (collected for the last six years) about some of the Y Soft ARUR activities mentioned above.

Theses supervision

During the last six years, 46 bachelor and master theses realized in collaboration with Y Soft were successfully defended. See Figure 1 for a number of theses defended per each year. In 2015, for example, 6 bachelor and 8 master theses were successfully defended. Most of all the theses came from Y Soft R&D in collaboration with the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University.

More than 75% of all theses defended during the last six years received “A” or “B” grade. See Figure 2 for grades statistics per each year. In 2015, for example, 14 theses were successfully defended and received eight “A” and six “B” grades (i.e., 100% of the theses defended in 2015 received “A” or “B” grade).

Part-time positions at Y Soft

14 students were given part-time jobs within the scope of ARUR during the last six years. Some of these part-timers have been working in Y Soft on their bachelor or master thesis for more than a year. There were ten students from the Faculty of Informatics (Masaryk University), two from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication (Brno University of Technology), and two from the Faculty of Information Technology (Brno University of Technology).

Student positions at research laboratories

Every year, in cooperation with the Faculty of Informatics, Masaryk University, we participate in organizing a competition for talented students who are in the first or the second year of their bachelor studies. During the last six years, we have supported nine students who were winners of the competition. Some students were funded for more than one year. In 2015, six student positions at research laboratories have been funded.

Thanks to all already participating in our ARUR program and we are looking forward for new participants!

We are more than happy to discuss any suggestions and ideas for cooperation you might have.
