[D] I want to write my Bachelor Thesis about Topology optimization using Machine Learning and have some questions.
I’m studying mechanical engineering and always have been interested in machine learning. I got through some basic tutorials online, the Google Crashcourse and currently am digging through the Hands-on Machine Learning book from Aurelien Geron as a side project of mine.
Right now I kind of want to apply my learned knowledge in my bachelor thesis. I will write it in the chair of Optimization of mechanical structures at my university and my professor proposed, that I pick Topology Optimization using deep learning as my topic.
Now my question: Is it possible, that I succeed in doing this project? I’m kind of intimidated, mainly because I never made my own project and/or did scientific research to such extend, but I like a challenge if it’s a realistic one. I have around 4 1/2 -5 Months.
If it’s possible :
What material should I get into? It seems, that a CNN will be the best bet for that project, any advice for that field?
Could you think of another topic I could pick, combining my knowledge of Machine Learning with Optimization of Mechanical Structures?
Thanks in advance
