Student Theses and Jobs


We always have open topics for Bachelor and Master Theses, Froschungspraktika, Hochschulpraktika and Master Projects and also open positions for student work (HiWi positions). You can find most of them listed in the tables below. If you do not find a suitable topic in there we would still like to encourage you to contact us and tell us about your ideas.

Please use the contact form below to apply for any of the listed topics, open positions or to propose your own topic. We will then get in contact with you, usually within two days.

Topic Information Meeting

We will have 3-4 meetings each year where we present all our currently available Bachelor’s and Master’s thesis topics to all interested students. If you plan to attend this meeting, please still submit the interest form below! If there are too few applications, the meeting might be cancelled and the topics presented individually. The next meeting is scheduled for TBD.
