Student Projects

Bachelor and Master students from Danish and international universities can do a research project at the Center.

The projects are registered as a special course (10-20 ECTS) or Master thesis (30-60 ECTS). If you cannot find a suitable project in the list below, do not despair! You can also formulate a project in dialogue with a supervisor. You can also search for all projects at DTU in the DTU project database.
