The DEEDS group targets research in the broad area of "embedded systems and robust software", and specifically composite issues in dependability, security, and robustness. The thrust is on system level issues encompassing architectural, algorithmic and especially "robust middleware" (software/OS) issues related to provisioning of dependability in safety-critical as well as service/cost-critical distributed and networked systems. Increasingly, we are also looking at the links across Dependability and Security.
NOTE: There is a wide variety of topics for Diploma/Bachelors projects that we can offer - the best approach is to stop by and discuss. You can also check some of the current proposals :
