Student Projects and Theses

The Virtual Reality and Visualization Research Group offers the opportunity to complete research-oriented semester projects as well as Bachelor's or Master's theses, in which students work closely with the research assistants to develop and answer relevant research questions matching their personal skills and interests. We offer projects and theses in the areas of Big Data Visualization, Multi-User Virtual Reality, Information Visualization, Scientific Visualization, Real-Time Rendering and Human-Computer Interaction.

Recent Student Projects

We analyzed the state-of-the art of mobile visualizations as well as its limitations and challenges. We then designed a web-based data visualization application, which visualized multivariate waste data of the EU countries with parallel coordinates and touch interactions specifically tailored towards mobile devices.

We analyzed the capabilities of existing social VR systems and developed novel interaction techniques including a toolset for giving presentations in social virtual environments, metaphors for managing transfers of the presenter role, a toolset for simulating and evaluating eye contact, and a short-term group navigation techniques based on virtual hand holding.
