The Chair of Logistics and Quantitative Methods advises students in their Bachelor and Master theses upon prior agreement. We offer the following opportunities for selecting a topic:
Before you apply for a theses it is necessary for you to decide whether you want to select a proposal from the institute or prepare your own proposal.
If you decide on selecting an institute proposal, you can choose from one of the recommended topics. These can be reviewed here. Please inform us of your preferred topic and explain (max. 10 lines), why you are interested in the topic.
If you would like to make your own topic suggestion, we kindly request that you write a one-page exposé addressing the issue and how you propose to solve it. We also support work performed in collaboration with companies if sufficient academic foundation exists.
The commencement of the thesis project is jointly decided upon.
After having been accepted, it is your obligation to contact your thesis supervisor at our chair. Note, that acceptance as a thesis candidate does not imply that we have also accepted your proposal topic. We cannot guarantee that an accepted candidate works on his or her preferred topic; we will carefully review and discuss proposals with students (especially in the cases where students furnished their own proposal) and will try to accommodate a student’s preference. The topic will be jointly decided upon with your thesis supervisor. All accepted candidates have to take part in our scientific writing seminar.
Theses may be written in English or German language depending on students preferences.
Please note that students have to attend the "Scientific Writing Seminar-Bachelor" or the "Scientific Writing Seminar-Master" prior to submitting their thesis.
