On this webpage you find a list of all available student projects, listed according to the group/topic. Many of the projects listed below can be adapted to form a B.Sc. Group Project, an M.Sc. Semester project, or an M.Sc. Master's thesis. Please contact the supervisors listed for each project for more information.

The IfA Open House is an opportunity to discuss the details of the open projects below with the IfA members leading the respective project. In addition more project opportunities open up in the weeks before and after the Open House event, so keep an eye on this space for the project that matches your interests.
