- EN - IT

In recent weeks, the group led by USI Professor Patrick Thomas Eugster and the company SAP, one of Europe’s leading software companies for business process control, have signed a framework agreement that will fund PhD positions at USI Computer System Institute.

An agreement of such reach is a significant step for academic and industry-related collaboration. Moreover, it offers interesting opportunities, especially for students who will have the chance to collaborate on SAP-related projects.

The Software Systems group (SWYSTEMS), led by Prof. Patrick Eugster, is part of USI Computer Systems Institute. It counts 20 years of international experience in cutting-edge research in collaboration with corporate partners. The group’s focus is on challenging problems of high relevance.

SAP is one of Europe’s leading software companies and a world leader in business process control.

The project covers a range of topics in data centre computing, including, for example, network monitoring and management, resource management, network security, and programming languages.
