I heard that your group provides a Wiki with tips on how to write a thesis. Where can I find it?
See Scientific Writing and our Wiki page.
How can I learn more about the projects you offer?
Please contact the advisor of the topic(s) you’re interested in. Whether you’re interested in one of our proposals or already have an idea, we’ll find a topic that fits your interests.
Would it be possible to work on a project / thesis as a team?
Yes, you can work together on a project, but the contributions of each team member have to be clearly separated. For the project, “clearly separated” means that each member needs to address his/her programming subproject. For the thesis, “clearly separated” means that each member addresses his/her research questions and submits an individual thesis. If chapters contain contributions of the other team members, this needs to be clearly acknowledged, e.g., in a footnote in each affected chapter.
Can I do my master’s thesis with you, although I didn’t participate in one of your seminars or projects before?
Yes, however, this is not recommended.
Do you offer paid HiWi positions to students working on a project or thesis?
Yes, students working on certain topics can be appointed to a paid HiWi position. We are happy to discuss the eligible topics and other details during a personal meeting.
Would it be possible to complete a project / thesis abroad?
Yes. Particularly, we offer, among others, paid internships at the National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, US and other places. Browse through our Students Corner for more information.
Can I suggest my project idea?
Absolutely! In this case, please contact one of the supervisors of the above listed projects or Norman Meuschke.
