Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Electronic and embedded systems engineering

In projects like these you can design, build, and program systems with microcontrollers. Examples include your own electronic drum kit, or a smart robotic camera mount (wouldn't YouTubers love that..?).

Hands-on robotics

We can build a robot from scratch, starting with assembling the mechanical and electronic parts until programming it to do different things, like pick and place objects, follow paths or send you a live stream of a camera.

Understanding STEM theory with simulations and animations

We can explore in deep what you learn in math, and physics-related classes with simulations and animations that can be implemented with either MATLAB or Python coding, such as the dynamics of a simple pendulum.

Advancing to robotics research

In these projects, we can work on quick research projects where we will review the literature and implement interesting ideas from recent robotics research papers.

Coding skills

Python, C, C++, MATLAB
