Initiative applications:

Many interesting bachelor and master thesis topics are assigned before they make it to the listing here. Please inform yourself which research assistants supervise student theses and work in your field of interest and then contact them directly for information about the latest topic. 

If none of the following specified topics matches your interest, please check out our current projects. We welcome initiative applications for projects that are according to your research interest and will try to find a suitable topic.

  • WEARHAP: Physical Human-Robot interaction with wearable haptic device

         Please contact: Selma Music

  • CONHUMO: Modeling human behavior for novel control strategies in safe interactions

         Please contact: Hendrik Börner, Thomas Beckers, Jonas Umlauft

  •  SNOOKIE: Biomimetic underwater robotics

         Please contact: Stefan Sosnowski


Often it is possible to reduce the amount of work of a master thesis to fit for a bachelor thesis. Please check with the respective supervisors if that is the case.




  • IP: UV Härtekammer Entwurf: 3D Druckobjekte aus SLA-Resindruckern erfordern eine Nachhärtung unter UV-Licht. Ziel der Ingenieurspraxis ist der Entwurf einer Steuerung für die Härtekammer.  Sie wählen Komponenten für die Steuerung aus und implementieren ein Bedienungs- und Sicherheitskonzept, das Sie abschließend anhand von Testroutinen validieren und dokumentieren. Kontakt: [Christian Ott]
  • IP: Soft-Robotics gripper: The goal of this project is to develop soft grippers for robotics, characterize the performance of the designs and refine both the overall design as well as the manufacturing process. Contact: [Stefan Sosnowski]

Hiwi Jobs

  • UUVsimUUVsim is a simulation tool extending the functionality of Gazebo in ROS to underwater scenarios. For this work, a simulation environment for a UUV should be set up (i.e. BlueROV2 Heavy) , evaluated and compared against competing software UWsim . Furthermore, experimental data is also to be gathered to assess the simulator's fidelity in simulating not only the environment and vehicle dynamics but a range of sensors that are to be employed in maritime environment. Experience with ROS and Gazebo is desireable. Contact: [Petar Bevanda]
