Master's theses and project work

Our institute offers a variety of master's, bachelor's, study, and project work opportunities. In this context, we cover all areas of mechatronic development. Our topics are aligned with research activities. Therefore, you can find topics related to energy technology, system optimization, electrical measurement technology, robotics, haptic perception, actuator and motor development, and sensor development."


The primary path to your final thesis: Unsolicited applications based on your interests

80% of our final theses are not pre-announced but are defined and coordinated according to the interests of the students. Therefore, we would be delighted if you contact us directly. We will then generate individual projects tailored to your interests and needs, in alignment with our research questions. To get an idea of past topics, please follow this link.

We recommend reaching out to researchers/employees in the areas of your interest for better guidance. To help you navigate, we have created a brief overview table of typical subject areas and potential contacts. Please get in touch with the researchers corresponding to your areas of interest for your final thesis.

Furthermore, we have informally compiled a collection of papers on our Confluence-page.

Since we tailor the topics to the students' interests, we typically do not advertise open assignments. However, if we do so, you can find them on the webpage of the ZLL. (Center for Lifelong Learning) page.
