Thesis Topics and Grants

Thesis topics available for Master's Thesis students

CWC units are committed to offering an inspiring Master’s Thesis topic related to Communications Engineering as well as high-quality supervision. Access for necessary material and software is also provided. Professors and researchers of CWC-RT an CWC-NS research units have submitted a good number of possible M.Sc. thesis topics. These suggestions are made open for the students of Electrical Engineering and Wireless Communication Engineering degree programmes to pursue. The proposed topics can be explored on the TTK-OPTIMA > CWC Thesis Topics (Koivu or Pajun login required).

It is even possible to apply for financial support for the thesis work. Two options are offered:

  1. EMPLOYMENT
    Depending on the research focus and needs in externally funded research projects, CWC units are interested in hiring a few highly suitable students as research assistants - doing master's thesis work - during a period of maximum 6 months.
     
  2. GRANT
    DCE shall offer up to 10+ grants as defined below:
