Our chair supervises bachelor, master and project (WING) theses, depending on the respective “Prüfungsordnung” of the study programs.
If you want to write a thesis with our Chair, we recommend to come to one of the information meetings, which take place two times each semester: in one of the last weeks of the semester and again in the beginning of the semester. The exact dates will be announced on the website well in advance.
In this meeting, the application process, the seminar procedure, how theses are supervised, possible topics and general questions concerning the theses are discussed.
Having participated in one of the Chair’s courses is a requirement in order to write a thesis with us. You can also attend such a class parallel to the work on your thesis, that is in the same semester. Please inform yourself on the Chair’s offerings. As some courses only take place once a year, it is necessary to inform yourself as soon as possible.
Concerning processing time and submission formalities the “Prüfungsordnung” of the respective study programs apply. Please inform yourself about the details. Moreover, please note the formal requirements for the exposé and scientific papers in general.
There are no requirements or restrictions regarding the thesis topics; therefore, it is important that you have already dealt with your personal interests and the research areas or publications of the Chair. Furthermore, we advise you to take a look at the research profiles’ of the Chair’s employees.
Generally speaking, it is possible to write your thesis in cooperation with a company. However, in this case it is most relevant that the identified topic is based on a scientific motivation, which has proved difficult in the past. As most theses, in anyway, show high practical relevance and data collection oftentimes takes place in companies, we strongly suggest to start looking for a suitable topic independent from a company.
