From October 1st, 2021 to October 31st, 2021: Next application deadline for theses

From October 1st, 2021 to October 31st, 2021 you can apply for bachelor and master theses at our professorship in the supervision period IV. Details can be found in our notes on theses. Our topics are set in a way that you can write the thesis despite possible applicable infection control measures (e.g. restricted use of the library, restricted accessibility of laboratories, closed CIP pools, travel restrictions abroad) and therefore this is no reason for an extension of the deadline.
