Opportunities for cooperation

The focus of our research activity lies in the orientation towards applicability. We cooperate with industrial partners to find innovative solutions to their problems. If you are interested in a cooperation, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Cooperating with us is possible at the following levels:

Industry projects

Industry projects

A PCB is removed from the placement machine.

We will find an innovative solution to your problem within the framework of an industrial project. Our team may be composed of research associates, professors, and student assistants. The industrial partner will bear the cost of the research endeavour. This will give the industrial partner the right to use our results for the respective application area.

Publically-funded projects

Raspberry Pi boards are prepared for the project groups

There is often the possibility to finance innovative research work through public funding. Here, universities team up with industrial companies to request funding. Up to 50 percent of the project cost can be publically funded once the grant has been approved of.

FHWS offers support in selecting suitable funding programmes and contact partners. Please use our contact form for more information.

Final theses

Final theses

Bachelor's thesis (3 Months)

During a Bachelor's thesis, smaller research projects up to three months can be supervised by us.

Master's thesis (18 months)

The Master’s programme Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at FHWS is research-oriented. Students will work on a research project over the course of three semesters. Research projects with a duration of 18 months are very well-suited to become Master’s projects.

Doctorate (> 3 years)

A cooperative doctorate/Ph.D. takes between three and five years. In the context of a collaboration between university and industry, solutions to very challenging problems can be investigated.

The strength of FHWS is the intense supervision by professors over the full term of writing a final thesis. This ensures that the professors’ expertise flows directly into practice.
