Master & PhD Thesis

AVL is constantly looking for creative students with a personal drive. If you want to combine theoretical and practical knowledge at an early stage and broaden your experience in the field you are interested in, then get involved!

Topics for your thesis must be well defined and discussed with your university supervisor before they are presented to the respective AVL department. Topics can relate to all business divisions.
