Degree Project / Master's Thesis

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.

If you are interested in doing your degree project with us please contact our Director of Studies, Anton Cervin (, or discuss directly with any of the teachers at the department.


Slides and contact info from the MSc thesis meetings 2021-nov-5 and 2021-nov-10 are available here
