Master's theses in Computer Vision
If you want to do your master's thesis project within the field of Computer Vision, there are several options:
- Internal Master's thesis at the Computer Vision Lab (CVL)
Internal master's theses are normally connected to a research project, and explore a specific research idea.
Some project suggestions are listed here: CVL Master's thesis proposal repository.
If you already have an idea for a project, you may also contact one of the CVL examiners directly.
See the list of examiners below.
- External Master's thesis at a company
We maintain a list of research projects defined by external partners.
These project proposals are found here: External Master's thesis project proposals.
Future external projects may** also be posted here: LiU exjobbsportal.
If you do not find an interesting project on the page above, you may also contact companies/organizations directly.
Oftent they have plans for projects, or are able to create a new one for you.
A list of suitable companies can be found here: Computer Vision oriented companies/organisations.
If you have tried the possibilities above and still not found any interesting project, you can also directly contact one of the examiners at CVL, see list of examiners below.
Assignment of examiner and internal supervisor
All master's theses must have an examiner and an internal supervisor. For an external project it is also mandatory that the company offers supervision on site. See Master's thesis information at ISY.
Examiners for a Master's thesis in computer vision:
- Per-Erik Forssén (CVL Master's thesis coordinator)
- Michael Felsberg
- Maria Magnusson
- Mårten Wadenbäck
- Bastian Wandt
- Leif Haglund
- Lasse Alfredsson
Assignment of examiner is made after you contact the coordinator or an examiner (you will not necessarily get the one you contact). When contacting an examiner, you should provide the following information:
- Your name and personal number (we need to check your qualifications in Ladok)
- Name of the company and email to a contact person (for external Master's projects)
- Whether it is a master's thesis or bachelor's thesis
- When you want to start
- A project description (e.g. the ad from the company).
- Suggested course code for the project, corresponding to your main field of study (Sv:huvudområde) (e.g. TQET33, TQDT33, TQME33, TQMD33, TQTM33).
Thesis presentation in Swedish
It is common that students write their thesis in English, but want to do the presentation in Swedish. To make this easier, we have provided a list of translations of common computer vision terms.
The Swedish Optical Society also maintains an extensive list of Swedish optical terminology that is useful:

Scientific publication of a master's thesis work
It is not uncommon that master's theses in computer vision are of such quality that they can be turned into scientific publications. This usually requires substantial amount of extra work, but could be a good acheivement to put in your CV. If you are interested in submitting your work for peer review at a conference or in a journal, check with your examiner or university supervisor for hints on how to frame the work and where to submit it. If you feel that your university supervisor has helped you substantially, also consider inviting him/her for co-authorship.

We recommend that the defence is announced one week in advance, at the vision-seminars mailing list. List subscribers may do so by sending an email to: vision-seminars.isy AT lists.liu.se.

- Automatic grammar checking tools for the English language are highly recommented. One such tool is Grammarly.
- Help with writing in English can also be had from Academic English Support at IKK.
- **: This is contingent on this site being fixed to: (i) allow a proposal to be categorized as more than one "Main field of study" , as all Computer Vision projects fall under 2-4 "Main fields of study" (ii) allow easier inclusion of PDF attachments. Right now the proposal has to first be added, then removed, then found, then the attachment added, then the proposal should be added again.
