Short description

The project thesis consists of working independently on a concrete scientific question or engineering problem from the field of data science.
It is usually worked on in a team of two (group work) under the guidance of a lecturer. The students regularly provide updates on the progress of their work. The written final report documents the problem, the work assignment, the project implementation and the work results

Module contents

The project thesis is the independent work on a practice-oriented technical-scientific problem. The students apply the knowledge acquired during their studies and prove with the successful completion that they are able to work in engineering science.

A project thesis consists of
  • A conceptual part, in which the theoretical and methodological foundations for answering the question are formulated,
  • its technical realisation, or implementation,
  • and the scientific presentation and discussion of the results.
The supervisor offers professional support to achieve the goals according to the assignment. While working on the project thesis, students regularly report on the progress of their work and discuss the further course with their supervisor.

The results are documented in writing in a scientific-technical report.
