A Master Thesis is the final part of the requirements for the completion of the MSc course. Through the thesis a student demonstrates the ability to independently address a problem applying state of the art methodologies and presenting project outcomes in an understandable and scientific manner according to academic writing standards.

Definition of a thesis topic - thesis proposal - typically takes place at the beginning of the second study year and is subject to approval by the course leadership. Additional thesis supervision through an external expert in the respective field is recommended.
