The thesis work will be carried out at IKEA of Sweden and reflects the fact that we need to develop guidelines for the product development of parasol bases. This includes calculating the requisite weight and diameter of the IKEA parasols that need to be supported. The accuracy of the calculations should be confirmed by practical tests in a wind tunnel, for example. Supplementary projects arising from these studies may also be appropriate: for example, tests to determine the safety parameters for the other parts of the parasol. We are, of course, open to your suggestions as regards the methodology.

The thesis work includes the implementation of practical samples, using various modelling techniques, development of relevant factors (for example, fabric weight, pole, size, etc.), prototyping and the production of presentation materials in English.

We are looking for two students who are planning to devote 20 weeks to their thesis work during the autumn 2010 semester. Students should be studying engineering at masters level (for example, mechanical engineering or industrial economics).

It is important that you are able to work independently and that you have the ability to analyse facts. It is also important that you are fluent in written and spoken English.

As the successful candidate you will be naturally inquisitive, with both technical and practical skills. You must also be able to run a project on your own. And, last but not least, you should have a constant desire to learn new things!

Include in your application the name of the person with whom you intend to undertake this thesis project.

The closing date is April 25, but we are continuously evaluating applications. Therefore we encourage you to send in your application as soon as possible.
