Advanced Systems Research Lab

Advanced Systems Research Lab (ASRLab) is established in 2016/8.

We are looking for motivated Master or Ph.D. students to join us for developing advanced computer systems. To know more about our current works, please feel free to contact us.

We are working on smart transportation projects requiring both intensive knowledge of system software and engineering. In addition, we are building software tools on top of world-class open source projects, such as Autoware and LG Simulator. You are welcome to join us and earn your tickets to work with them and to apply for the potential international exchange programs.

You can learn…

  • A positive working attitude
  • Independent thinking
  • Presentation skills
  • Teamwork
You will learn from practical academic/industrial projects.

To anticipate the fast changing world, we will regularly review our progress (e.g., twice a week).

We hope that the capabilities will prepare you for your industry/academic jobs.

For Prospective Students

We are looking for graduate students with the following attributes:
  • willing to work hard/fast (It takes a lot of time to do a great system research.)
  • eager to learn
  • can-do attitude
  • responsibility (責任心), tenacity (恆心), curiosity (好奇心)
  • coding ability (C/C++/Java)
Welcome to write an email to ChiaHeng to schedule a time for us to chat. Please prepare your resume and read through the following articles, before we can talk about your research work.
