We offer projects mainly in computational science and engineering. Your educational background could for instance be applied mathematics, computer science, computational physics, control and robotics, machine vision, mechanical engineering. Please contact us (martin.servin@umu.se and claude.lacoursiere@umu.se) with your interest and CV. Do feel free to propose a thesis project by yourself.
