Project offers

Join us

We offer a range of projects from undergraduate to postgraduate level, covering problems in software development, data mining, visualisation, modelling and simulation. Projects can be conducted 'in-house' or with national and international partners. We are also able to support successful students with industrial placements in Germany, Europe and overseas. See the Project Page for further information. Contact Prof. Olaf Wolkenhauer any time for further information.


All topics listed can be worked on as a student assistant or in final year projects as part of a degree.
