The work should relate to innovations, improvements or new applications in die casting. New impulses with an impact on the foundry industry, e.g. from the fields of artificial intelligence, Industry 4.0, software or sustainability, are explicitly desired. Thus, students of non-foundry-related courses of study are explicitly invited.

Note: Submission of the entire thesis is not required.
