Thesis work

Each year a number of thesis works, or "exjobb" in Swedish, are undertaken at the aircraft design group. These are either made internally at the university, often related to an active research program, or in collaboration with external aerospace companies.

FLUMES Aero Fields of Specialisation

Master/Bachelor thesis at Flumes Aero should be related to our research areas. These are:

  • (Conceptual) Aircraft Design
  • Modeling & Simulation
  • Subscale Flight Testing
  • Systems-of-Systems / Systems Engineering
  • Knowledge-Based System Design (CAD)


Current Master Thesis Proposals

Please see our master thesis examples and list of master thesis proposals.
