  • Before participating in a seminar at the undergraduate level we highly recommend taking the course „Operations Research“.
  • In case the demand for places exceeds capacity, the participants will be selected on the basis of their previous knowledge in operations research.

Bachelor's Theses

  • Bachelor’s theses are assigned on two dates per semester. The first one is in the first week of lectures, the second one right after the exam period. The next date will be announced here and in Digicampus.

  • At the assignment event the different research areas are introduced. The exact topics are then assigned and communicated to the students.
  • Due to the short preparation times, theses written in cooperation with companies are not possible.
  • In case demand for bachelor’s theses exceeds capacity, students are prioritized with respect to the number of the chair’s courses passed.
