We welcome students to do master projects at CBC. Take a look at the proposed projects below or contact a researcher involved in your area of interest.

Bachelor thesis can be made in the form of literature studies. You can choose to do a study related to our research or in a field you are interested in.
Independent work on bachelor or master level can also be made in the form of test-based studies. They are often linked to ongoing research projects. Contact us and we will come up with an exciting idea together!
Here, we have collected completed master and bachelor thesis work from the Centre for Biological Control.
