If you are a student interested in doing a semester- or master thesis in one of our research areas please do not hesitate to contact us! 



You may find some suggestions for topics below, but this list is not necessarily exhaustive. The thesis type given can often be changed, so if you are looking for a master thesis and find a semester thesis topic interesting, do talk to us. Alternatively, if you have a specific interest or have any ideas of your own that are not listed, we are open for discussion.

Note: Group work is not offered individually on our website - but can well be arranged on request.
