Topics for bachelor and master projects (TFG, TFM) for:
- ESEIAAT engineering bachelor and master degrees
- Master degree in Photonics
- Bachelor and master degree in Engineering Physics
Semiconductor laser lab (Gaia Buiding, UPC Campus Terrassa)
Our research is highly inter-disciplinary and many more research topics are available (in biophysics, neuronal dynamics, Earth science, complex networks).
What are we doing?
− We study nonlinear phenomena in various physical systems.
− A good understanding and control of the mechanisms that trigger instabilities allow to develop systems that work properly.
Why doing a project or an internship with us?
− You will learn to work with sophisticated lab equipment
− You will acquire programming skills and experience with data analysis tools.
− You will learn to apply engineering techniques to advance science, and you will contribute to solve real-world problems with socio-economic impact.
− You will gain experience in an international and multicultural work environment.
