Master Thesis Program

In spring 2022 our master thesis program brought together 28 students and 15 partners in a hugely successful thesis project collaboration. We are now ready for partners to pitch their ideas to participate in the expanded 2023 cohort.

About the program

Partners and students gather at matchmaking events which this year will take place in both Gothenburg and Linköping. Partners pitch their suggested thesis topics and begin building relationships with interested master students. 

Students who enter the program work on the topics which matter most to partners and sit at one of our locations. They benefit from events and seminars from AI Sweden experts during the spring. They will have access to the Data Factory, the Edge Learning Lab and DGX A100, and other resources.

In spring 2022 the cohort welcomed students from Chalmers and SLU, and partners including Zenseact, SLU, Unibap, Volvo, and AstraZeneca. Some of the dissertations picked up on challenges and created greater awareness within topics such as cyber security, both at partners and AI Sweden.

"This is a great example of a low risk, low effort initiative, where organizations can explore and develop new areas." - Kim Henriksson, Project Manager at AI Sweden’s Edge Lab
