Degree projects

COSSE pursues long-term industrial relations, and interacts with companies such as ABB Corporate research (KTH), Shell (TU Delft), and simulation software developers such as COMSOL Inc. The collaborations lead to challenging thesis projects, internships, and potential future careers.

The degree project (Master's thesis) may be performed in a research group at the institute or as a project in industry or consulting company. It comprises 30 ECTS credits, and is carried out in the second half of the second year of the programme. Students are supervised and examined by faculty from both the home and the host university. Topics of degree projects are suggested at the joint workshop or by teachers at the home or host university. The result of the project is presented as a written report and in an oral seminar.
