Q: I heard that your group provides a Wiki with tips on how to write a thesis. Where can I find it?
A: See our Wiki page.
Q: How can I learn more about the projects you offer?
A: Please contact the advisor of the topic(s) you’re interested in. Whether you’re interested in one of our proposals or have an own idea, we’ll find a topic that fits your interests.
Q: Is it possible to work on a project / thesis as a team?
A: 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 own programming subproject. For the thesis, “clearly separated” means that each member addresses his/her own research questions and submits an individual thesis. If chapters contain contributions of the other team member, this needs to be clearly acknowledged, e.g., in a footnote in each affected chapter.
Q: Can I do my master’s thesis with you, although I didn’t attend one of your seminars or projects before?

A: Yes, students working on certain topics as part of a master’s thesis can be appointed to a paid HiWi position. We are happy to discuss the eligible topics and other details during a personal meeting.
Q: Is it possible to complete a project / thesis abroad?
A: Yes. Particularly, we offer paid internships at the National Institute of Informatics, Tokyo, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, US.
