Theses and research internships

On this page you will find suggestions for topics for future theses and research internships, but you can also get an overview of theses that have already been completed.

We strongly encourage students to write their thesis in englisch. In modern scientific work, nearly everything is in englisch. Writing your thesis successfully in english will not only prove your technical knowledge, but as well the ability to express your knwoldge in a foreign language.

For working at our chair, please read our checklist carefully. Furthermore, please provide as well the application form.

In addition to the topics listed here, you are also welcome to suggest your own ideas in the research fields mentioned. Please contact us by e-mail so that we can discuss your project.
