Open Guided Research, BSc and MSc Thesis Topics
We are offering topics in the context of and complementing our research projects. Below is a short list of some of the open topics. Please contact us to learn more about those. And, since any list may be out of date, please also check with us about other emerging topics or your own ideas. The homepage for chair members can be found here.
We are primarily a systems research group, so usually expect to do some kind of real world prototype system and/or simulator code implementation and evaluation. This may include putting together hardware for testbeds or evaluation systems and sometimes user studies. In some cases, we'll look for solid mathematical modeling and analysis, likely paired with simulations.
We expect all theses to be written in English.
Formal guidelines and information about the formatting and the submission of a thesis can be found here.
To apply for a topic, please send an email to the respective supervisor including a letter of motivation, CV, and a transcript of your completed courses.
Note: For the majority of the thesis topics, the candidate is required to undergo a trial period of the duration of one month during which his/her capabilities will be assessed. Such requirement implies that the official thesis registration date will be accordingly moved. Exceptions are possible based on the advisor discretion.
