Diploma Thesis Projects    (Examensarbeten)


Collaborative Theses

The Semiconductor materials group, IFM at LiU, offers two master theses focusing on the setup of DLTS (Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy). Please read through this information: Contact details are found in the descriptions, and you are also welcome to contact Dr. J Jacob Wikner. A couple of more links will be posted shortly. The projects can allocated to several students, mainly Master Thesis students, but also Bachelor Thesis students.

Projects

If you plan to do your project in industry, we are quite happy to assist as supervisors from the academic side. However, you must search for the project on your own, e.g., by checking our list of external projects. You must also, before you start, get a go-ahead permission from one of the supervisors at the department (ES) and also create the link between your supervisor in industry and us.

Electronics Systems have chosen not to publish its project proposals in detail on the internet. Continuously we have projects suitable for Bachelor and Masters Students. We suggest that you pass by one of the examiners (see below) to get a list of updated examples and so that you also can present your own thoughts and expected outcome of your work.

At the bottom of this page, you find an example list of project proposals that are parts of our on-going research activities.

We focus on design and implementation of electronic information processing systems. With design we imply all design steps from specification of the requirements that the function shall meet down to a description that can be used for implementation, i.e, mapping to software/hardware structure, in both the digital and analog domains.

Formal and Practical Issues

You can scroll down to the end of this page for some examples on projects, but please read through this first:

  • You must be eligible to start the thesis work.
  • You must yourself find a suitable project and an examiner* at Linköping University.
  • You may carry out the thesis work either in industry or at the department and you need a day-to-day supervisor (handledare).
  • One you have done the above, you must get the go-ahead permission from the supervisor and register at ISY that you will start the work.
  • You must have attended three oral presentations of other's theses
  • The thesis will not be printed by the department anymore, they will only be available as electronic copies.
  • You must present your thesis in-front of an audience and also be the opponent of another diploma thesis presentation.
  • Also, read through this page for more information from the department.

Documentation

There are a couple of templates found here:

but normally your supervisor can provide you with a template for the documentation. We prefer OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Word, since the department's computer system is linux based.

Further on:

  • At the beginning (prior to the starting) of your project you will receive a spread sheet with toll gates, expected dates for deliverables, and quick overview of your progress. You will sign this document together with the supervisor to emphasize that you have understood the time plan.
  • You will also receive a short, two-page specification of your project, i.e., your statement of work (SOW). You will sign this document together with the supervisor to emphasize that you have understood the specification.

Examiners

Examiners at the Electronics Systems division are:
