Master- Study- und Projectworks

The Institute for Mechatronics in Mechanics offers a large number of Master- Bachelor- and Project-Works. In those we cover all relevant areas of mechatronics design. Our topics originate from research-questions and compose from topics out of energy-engineering, system-optimization, electrical measurement technology, robotics, haptic perception, actuator- sensor- and motor-development.

Main approach to get a thesis: Initiative Application

80% of our theses are not defined upfront, but are designed to the interests of the students. Of course, we happy if you contact us directly. We will be happy to prepare individual theses customized to your needs and in line with our research topics. To get an idea of past theses, follow this link.

We therefore recommend that you contact the respective researchers/staff members in the areas of interest. For better orientation, we have prepared a small overview table of typical topics and contact persons. Please contact the researchers according to your areas of interest for your thesis.

Furthermore we created a less formal page in our confluence environment to collect current topics:

As all of our topics are tuned according to the students showing interest we do not make general postings for works anymore. If we do, you will find them on the central page of the ZLL.
