Sustainability projects and supervisors

The Sustainability Science Centre can help you identify a relevant researcher, potential supervisor or project, if you want to focus on sustainability. Reflections, imagination and a bit of research on possibilities for your discipline, might be the way to get sustainability issues to fit with your assignments and studies.

Find a Bachelor's or Master's thesis supervisor

The choice of topic for your thesis is your own. Thus, it is an excellent opportunity for you, if you want to focus on sustainability in your discipline.

Remember: In most cases, your thesis supervisor must be a researcher from your own institute. However, as this may vary, always check the rules of your study programme.
