Bachelor projects

We usually offer several bachelor thesis projects every year. For optimal learning output you should enter the project with a genuine interest in theoretical physics and some confidence in the mathematical toolbox that you have acquired. Most of our projects have a computational aspect; and consequently those projects offer an excellent opportunity to advance your skills in the computational scientific methodology.

Read more about avaliable bachelor projects in physics on the Chalmers homepage (information only available in Swedish).

Published student projects

We are always aiming to construct projects that are directly related to ongoing research efforts. In fact, we take great pride in the fact that several projects have lead all the way to scientific publications. This is remarkable given that bachelor projects are performed by third-year undergraduate students. See examples below (bachelor student authors in bold face):
