Master/project assignments

I participate in regular supervision of project/master students at NTNU, about 3-7 students every semester. These students conduct either a specialization project (15 ECTS) or their master thesis (30 ECTS). Available projects are described below:


(TØ). A simulation model of economic markets
Economic markets for digital products have certain special characteristics making them unique compared to general economic markets. In order to better understand markets for digital products, it is important to have a deep understanding of the interaction of these effects. In this assignment, the student shall develop a DEMOS simulation model of economic markets for digital products. The model shall include user behavior and temporal evolution of such markets.

In particular, the student will study the following:

  • Background study of markets for digital products
  • Develop a simulation model in DEMOS
  • Analyze digital markets using the developed DEMOS model

This assignment is open for 2 students.

(TØ). Business models for the green digital society
The increased size of the digital economy has both positive and negative effects regarding the goal of reaching a zero-emission society. Digital products may replace physical products in many industries, contributing to a reduction in greenhouse gases. However, this reduction may be eliminated or even lead to a total increase in greenhouse gases due to rebound effects or as a result of the energy required to produce digital products. In this assignment the student will look into the issue of innovative business models promoting a green digital society. How can we utilise digital products in order to ensure reductions in greenhouse gases?

In particular, the student will study the following:

  • Background study of markets for digital products, business models and global emissions
  • Develop a business model promoting a green digital society
  • Analyse the business model wrt. rebound effects

This assignment is open for 1 student only.
