Bachelor and Master Thesis / Internships
An average of around 200 students work at Empa, whether it be in a several-week long internship during their studies or within the scope of their Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis projects. Although the majority of “our” students are enrolled at the two ETHs in Zurich and Lausanne, Swiss universities also “send” their students to Empa for the practical part of their final theses. All student projects are advertised on www.eth-gethired.ch and siropglobal.org.
The master thesis aims to systematically investigate residual stresses using X-ray methods of cold forged parts after undergoing different hardening processes and steps. The parts will be investigated as produced as well as after extensive use in durability tests.
