Thesis - topic selection and registration

Your studies are coming to an end and now all that's missing is your final paper.

In order to find an interesting topic get in contact with chairs, lecturers, professors or external companies. There are often postings on bulletin boards or websites, or just have a look if you find something suitable on our Jobs and Career page.

As soon as you have found a good topic, your thesis needs to be registered.


Important information for students
who have already registered their thesis via the thesis registration form as usual before the activation of the thesis portal (02.11.2020): Please do not additionally register your thesis in the portal. In this case, you will also not submit your thesis via the portal either (for details, see "Thesis submission").

Please note that you must be enrolled until the day you submit your thesis.
