Bachelor's Thesis

 

BewerbungYou will finish your Bachelor's studies with your Bachelor's thesis. The legal framework for this can be found in the Examination Regulations for the Bachelor's degree program in Electrical and Information Engineering or in the Examination Regulations for the Bachelor's degree program in Electrical Engineering and Business Administration.

The Bachelor's thesis - just like the industrial internship - is scheduled for the seventh semester. You can complete both in whatever order you wish. Students of both Bachelor's degree programs write their Bachelor's thesis at a chair of the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering.

Admission to the Bachelor's thesis is granted to students who have earned at least 172 credit points towards the completion of their studies. For students of the Bachelor's degree program in Electrical and Information Engineering, the credit points in the areas "Technical Compulsory Modules", "Technical In-depth Modules", "Lab Courses and Projects" and "Non-technical Modules" are taken into account. For students of the Bachelor's degree program in Electrical Engineering and Business Administration, the credit points in the areas of "Technical Compulsory Modules", "Technical In-depth Modules", "Lab Courses and Projects", "Compulsory Modules in Business and Economics" and "Elective Modules in Business and Economics" are taken into account. In justified exceptional cases, the chairperson of the examination board may admit you to the Bachelor's thesis even if you do not yet fulfill the admission requirement.

You can complete your Bachelor's thesis at a chair of your choice, but there is no right to a thesis at a specific chair. Address the question of where you would like to write your thesis in good time. The compulsory courses of the Bachelor's degree programs give you first insights into the working areas of the chairs. You can extend these insights by taking additional technical in-depth modules and/or advanced lab courses at the chairs. The knowledge from these modules can be helpful for a bachelor thesis. For a bachelor thesis, however, it is not a mandatory requirement to have completed further modules at a chair in addition to the compulsory modules.

The chairs provide information about possible topics in various ways: you will find announcements, for example, on the notice boards of the chairs or on their websites. You are also welcome to contact the professors and their research assistants and ask them about possible topics. In order to be able to offer you theses with reference to current research work, the corresponding topics are sometimes only worked out concretely when the chairs receive a request for a thesis.

In individual cases, theses in cooperation with industry are offered. If you are interested in a thesis in a company, please contact the chairs whose research topics interest you and clarify whether they currently offer a Bachelor' thesis in cooperation with a company. Since Bachelor's theses at the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering can only be issued and supervised by professors and private lecturers working at the Department, it is also mandatory to be supervised by a chair of the Department in case of a thesis in industry.

Once you have found a topic, submit an application for admission to the Bachelor's thesis to the Examinations Office for Electrical and Information Engineering. You can find the relevant form on the website of the Examination Office. It is recommended that you submit the application one to two weeks before the planned start of work on the thesis. As soon as you have submitted your application to the Examinations Office, the staff there will check whether you meet the admission requirements. If this is not the case, the chairperson of the examination board will check whether you will be granted an exemption and thus be allowed to start your Bachelor's thesis anyway. As soon as the necessary decisions have been made, the Examination Office will inform both you and the chair where you would like to write your Bachelor's thesis about the result.

Please note the further training offers for academic work and in particular for academic writing, which are offered by the university library, among others. The "on demand" workshop "Academic Writing" by service center employee Michael Meißer is available to you directly at the Faculty of Engineering. Please feel free to get in touch with him.
