The department always has a number of suggestions for degree projects (see below for examples). We can also often help to establish contacts with companies that are interested in degree projects, both in Sweden and abroad. The topics can include systems theory, modeling and simulation, machine learning, real-time systems, process control, automotive systems, robotics, and a large range of other application areas for control and dynamical systems in general.

The following is a list of suggested projects in collaboration between multiple departments at LTH and/or industry:
- Accurate Simulation of a Collaborative Robot Arm with Cartesian Impedance Control (CS/Control)
- Automatic code generation for self-supervising control systems using Modia (Control/CS/Mogram)
- Parameter Identification of the KUKA LBR iiwa 7 R800 Robot (Control/CS) – contact Anders Robertsson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
The following is a selection of companies and some potentially control-related degree projects that have recently been proposed. Please contact Anton Cervin (email@example.com) if you would like to add your company and your master's thesis project proposal(s) to this list.
Please note that the list below is far from complete, and you may find recent advertisments at, e.g., MyCareer and other job portals.
Current thesis proposals, with special control focus in the following proposals:
|Carrier Corporation and Modelon||Control of air conditioning systems|
|Cognibotics||Advanced Teleoperation with Haptic Feedback|
|Combine control systems||General thesis information|
