Visiting student theses and projects

The Chair of Systems Theory and Control Engineering maintains close research and teaching contacts in Germany and abroad. The resulting cooperations often include hosting students during their thesis stage or internships to provide practical experience.

The theses listed below were completed or include work conducted while visiting Saarbrücken. The Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) are a program from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD in German) that supports the exchange of Bachelor students from North America, Great Britain, and Ireland (Link).
