      Bachelor's and master's theses

      The Department collaborates extensively with industry and organizations to provide our students with relevant projects for their Bachelor's and Master's theses. 

      The projects are based on real-life challenges, and we make sure that the students get to use the skills and knowledge they have acquired throughout their studies. 

      Those projects are a key stepping stone in preparing students for the workplace and provides them with a unique insight into their future work duties and their future work environment.
