Information concerning Bachelor and Master thesis at the Department of Mathematics

Bachelor thesis (B.Sc.)

The Bachelor thesis should show that the candidate is able to independently work on a mathematical problem within a given period of time using scientific methods and to present the results in an appropriate form in writing.

The bachelor thesis should show that the bachelor candidate is able to independently work on a problem from the field of mathematics according to scientific methods within a given period of time and to present the results in an appropriate form in writing.

The thesis gives 12 credit points, which corresponds to 360 working hours. Students who achieved more than 90 credit points of their degree program may start to work on their bachelor thesis. The allowed working time is 4 months after the topic is fixed with a thesis supervisor. The Bachelor's thesis is usually written in German or English.

 

The bachelor candidates should look for a supervisor for their thesis and ask for a topic. It is advisable to follow courses or seminars with this supervisor in advance in order to be prepared for the bachelor thesis.

Master thesis (M.Sc.)

The Master thesis should show that the candidate is able to independently work on a mathematical problem within a given period of time using scientific methods and to present the results in an appropriate form in writing.

The thesis gives 30 credit points, which corresponds to 900 working hours. Students who achieved more than 60 credit points of their M.Sc. degree program may start to work on their master thesis. The allowed working time is 6 months after the topic is fixed with a thesis supervisor. The master thesis is usually written in German (or English) and has to be defended with an oral presentation with a duration of 45 minutes.

We recommend to look for a thesis supervisor already at the start of your studies, such that you can attend the appropriate advanced lectures and seminars to prepare for the thesis work. Candidates should speak to potential supervisors at an early stage to notify them of their intent and to discuss necessary prerequisites and topics available for theses.
