Student projects

Generally projects can be adapted to the student's interest. If you have an idea, please contact us and send us your ideas together with your CV and Grade Sheet.

Within a project, students will learn how to tackle a research project. They will work together with Phd-students and postdoctoral researchers and develop detailed knowledge of a topic of current research.

Here, initial MATLAB or Python simulations are supposed to accompany the project work. Furthermore, students will learn how to read scientific texts effectively and to report research findings in writing and in seminar presentations.

In a Bachelor/Master thesis, students will get insight into a topic of current research. They will learn how to use MATLAB or Python for implementing algorithms and carrying out simulations. Real data may be available as well, depending on the chosen topic.
