Master's ThesisThe Department always has a number of suggestion for master thesis projects. We can also often help to establish contacts with companies which are interested in master thesis projects, both in Sweden and abroad. The topics were we have thesis projects are modeling and simulation, real-time systems, process control, automotive systems, robotics, and a large range of application areas for control, automation, and real-time systems.
If you are interested in a master thesis with us you should contact Karl-Erik Årzén <Karl-Erik.Arzen@control.lth.se> You can also discuss with the teachers in the different control courses.
The aim and the rules for a Master's Thesis are described in Kursplan för examensarbete inom civilingenjörsutbildningen. A Swedish information sheet from the Department of Automatic Control is also available.
