MSc Available Projects

We are currently looking for master students to join our group. If you are interested, please come by to discuss possible topics (contact person: Marco Zuniga). You can find a presentation outlining the available research topics here. Alternatively, you can do an external project with an embedded-systems oriented company. We do have a few industrial contacts with open projects (for example, check available assignments at TNO and ABB), but are also interested in new collaborations, so you may take the opportunity to find a company and research topic yourself.

A brief outlook of possible MSc topics in our group:
