Student Theses

© FBG/C. Bierwagen

 Student thesis projects should allow students to work in depth on topics in their areas of interest. In contrast to later professional life, there is a high degree of freedom.Therefore, especially graduation theses should be among the highlights of the studies.

PREPARATION AND SUPERVISION

Civil Engineering

The recommendations are intended to help ensure that student theses are supervised to the highest possible standard and in an appropriate manner, and that these theses can be completed within the allotted time. These recommendations are addressed to both supervisors and students (Civil Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Computational Methods in Engineering).

Geodesy and Geoinformatics

Students of geodesy and geoinformatics will find more information about student research projects and theses on the following pages:


SEARCH OF A TOPIC

1. Research foci of the institutes

Are you looking for a topic for your Interdisciplinary / Practical Project or Master Thesis? Please first find out about the research foci and topics offered by the institutes.

2. Request form

Once you have found out about the research foci and topics, use the form to contact directly the institute where you would like to write your thesis. Please also indicate two other institutes as alternatives.

If the first institute on your list is unable to offer you a topic, your request will be passed on to the next institute as quickly as possible.

Please allow a processing time of up to two weeks per institute. If you do not receive any feedback within this period, please contact the Dean of Studies' Office, Civil Engineering.


EVALUATION OF STUDENT THESES

The Committee on Teaching and the Curriculum, Civil Engineering has adopted a non-binding evaluation form for the evaluation of student theses.

However, some institutes may also apply other evaluation criteria.


WRITING SUPPORT

Academic Writing

  • specifying the topic
  • developing research questions and outlines
  • working with sources
  • Collecting and analysing data
  • Structuring material
  • Writing and reviewing texts ...

Writing Support

  • for international students and writing projects in German or English as a second/foreign language

Psychological Counselling

  • when there are work difficulties
  • when structure and motivation are lacking
  • when there is writer's block

e.g. english-speaking group "Grow – get ready, overcome worries!"
