Learning outcomes:
The final-year thesis written by students for their Masterís degree. It forms an integral part of a studentís scientific training and contributes towards the studentís final examination mark. The thesis is based on independent work on a clearly defined problem conducted by the student over the allowed period of six months.

Module content:
The masterís thesis is academically more demanding and is characterized by a greater degree of practical relevance than a Diplom thesis. Wherever possible, the thesis will concern work carried out either with a collaborative partner (company, institution etc.) or as part of a research project. The thesis should apply the skills and knowledge the student has acquired in all areas to solving a specific problem. The Masterís thesis is to be completed within no more than six months. The thesis can be written in German or in English if this has been previously agreed with the thesis supervisor. The thesis results are presented and discussed in a research colloquium.
