Information for students of Industrial Engineering (WING)

Lectures and seminars for WING

Students of Industrial Engineering can take part in every module (Bachelor and Master) offered by this Chair. They will be credited as general optional modules.

In most study programs it is necessary to take part in a lecture at the Chair of Technology Management to be able to write a thesis there. You can either take part before or while writing the thesis, sometimes even in the following semester. Please check the regulations in the “Prüfungsordnung” of your study program. If in doubt contact the “Prüfungsamt”. As some courses are only offered once a year, you should check the regulations on time.

Further information will follow soon.

    In the past few years, start-ups have been the objective of a variety of initiatives, such as digital incubators, accelerators, in-house programs or activities, and business plan competitions. For a proper understanding, the needs of start-ups should be considered holistically and critically.
    Bayern Innovativ is a neutral institution of the Free State of Bavaria and supports companies – including start-ups – along their innovation process. By means of a current analysis, Bayern Innovativ wants to shed more light on the needs of Bavarian start-ups against the background of current developments.
    The Project Thesis will be written at the Chair of Technology Management and supervisor will be Dr. Tanja Jovanovic, Projekt Manager Technology at BayernInnovativ.

Moreover you can apply with your own topic which you derived on the basis of our research areas.

Please apply with a short letter of motivation, updated CV and a course transcript from meinCampus. Send your application directly by e-mail to the chair member you are interested in writing your thesis with.

We continuously accept applications for project theses. You will individually agree on the starting and registration date with your supervisor. There are no thesis seminars as we have them for bachelor and master theses.
