Students Projects

Please find below the currently available projects. For highly motivated students, we can always find a project suiting your interests. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.

  • The student must imperatively be announced two weeks before beginning semester / master project in order to prepare the HR papers on time.
  • Therefore, he has to send an e : mail to the responsible person for his work at PVLAB and put in cc: [email protected]
  • If his arrival is declared at the beginning of the semester only, he will have to wait 2 weeks before starting his semester / master project in our laboratory.

The lab provides train tickets for students coming to Neuchâtel.  For master students, the lab provides monthly travelcards.
