Guided Research, BSc and MSc Thesis Topics

We are offering topics in the context of and complementing our research projects.  Below is a short list of some of the open topics.  Please contact us to learn more about those.  And, since any list may be out of date, please also check with us about other emerging topics or your own ideas. The homepage for chair members can be found here

We are primarily a systems research group, so usually expect to do some kind of real world prototype system and/or simulator code implementation and evaluation.  This may include putting together hardware for testbeds or evaluation systems and sometime user studies.  In some cases, we'll look for solid mathematical modeling and analysis, likely paired with simulations.

We expect all theses to be written in English.

Useful information for writing your thesis can be found here.

To apply for a topic, please send an email to the respective supervisor including a letter of motivation, CV, and a transcript of your completed courses.

Industry theses

We do collaborate with selected industry partners who offer theses to be carried out in the respective company. Different collaboration models exist, but we are selective on the topics, which need to be scientifically demanding, and require high standards also in company-internal supervision and guidance. We also require a close match to our own interest areas.

If you have your own ideas in a company you want to bring forward as a topic, make sure the above criteria are met as we are (actually: have to be) selective and don't compromise on quality.  For example, it generally won't work if you just want to transform your current application implementation work into a thesis.

Please talk directly to the indicated contacts for each opening below.

M.Sc. Topic: Extending a Mobility Platform App for Carsharing, Scooter Sharing and Bike Sharing Services by Pleasant Route Recommendations
