Chair of Information and Coding Theory

Bachelor/Master Theses

We offer bachelor theses (3 months) as well as master theses (6 months) on our research topics mentioned on the homepage.

Concerning the assignment of master theses, the entire ICT staff is available for questions. Usually, open topics will not be displayed on the blackboard in front of room D-015. Ideally, please get in touch with us about 3 months before the scheduled start of the thesis in order to discuss a suitable topic and availability. In exceptional cases selected theses may be prepared in cooperation with industrial partners or can be coordinated with internships, if and only if the guidelines of the FTEI fully apply.

Concerning topics for master theses please contact the ICT staff.
Information: Prof. Dr. Peter A. Hoeher (Kaiserstr. 2, Building D, Room D-015) and his research assistants
