For students

Last changed: 22 August 2018

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.

Suggestions for projects at CBC

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!
