Student Projects / Studentprojekt
Master Projects, BSc projects, Project course projects, Examensarbeten, Kandidatprojekt etc
While we have
hosted project students from many universities in- and outside Sweden,
Uppsala university students dominate, for obvious reasons.
Most student projects are 30 credits (30 hp), corresponding to roughly 20 weeks of
full time work, but 15 or 10 hp
projects may also be available, as well as shorter project course projects.
A project with us usually means
original research relating to our ongoing science projects, with the student
working in our offices and labs at the Ångström laboratory
as a part of our science team.
Interested in a project?
- Send us a mail stating your
interests, when you would like to
do a project, and other relevant details, including a list of what courses
you have taken.
- We try to match this to suitable supervisors and projects.
- You visit us and discuss with one or more (usually 3-5) potential supervisors to see if
something can be agreed.
- If some suitable project and supervisor is identified, we start the formal paperwork of registration etc, whereafter
the project can begin.
Some project ideas
The science front moves rapidly forward so lists of project ideas are hard to
maintain -- what seems like a good idea today may be irrelevant in half a year.
In addition, suitable projects also depend much on your interests, background and plans.
While we do list a couple of ideas below, the list of previous projects is actually
a better guide: here you can get a flavour of what kind of projects may be
available and what kind of science and work they contain. Have a look at old
projects below and then come up and meet us to discuss new ideas.
