How we determine your topic

If you are interested in writing your bachelor's, master's, or diploma thesis with us, please step by in our office hours or arrange an appointment with Prof. Meyer via email. We will then discuss your background, skills and interests in terms of lectures, seminars and labs you might have attended, your programming skills as well as your own ideas for thesis topics. From this discussion we determine the research area best suited for you and in a second step determine one or more possible topics from which you can then select. Note that only some of these topics may be listed on this page, but by far not all of them. So it's definitely worth while to step by and ask for more. However, please make sure that you meet most of the following prerequisites.

Prerequisites

You should have attended at least one of our lectures (or at least be familiar with the contents). Additionally, lectures on cryptography (for example by Prof. Mathar, Dr. Unger or Dr. Hanke) and the SVS lecture (Prof. Wehrle) are a plus. Attending our security lab course or taking part in our seminar before applying for a thesis is also recommended.
