We always welcome motivated students who want to write a thesis or student project in our group.
Usually, the topics that we offer are closely related to our ongoing research projects. As these change over time, we usually do not offer a thesis topic to be written 'sometimes in the future'. Thus, you should contact us at most a couple of weeks before you actually want to start writing your thesis.
For a Bachelor thesis we usually require that you have successfully passed either the course Algorithms, Probability, and Computing or the course Randomized Algorithms and Probabilistic Methods. For a Master thesis we always require that you have passed Randomized Algorithms and Probabilistic Methods (or something equivalent in exceptional cases).Currently, we offer thesis topics within the following areas:
Some specific topics are listed below. Note, however, that this list is not exclusive, we usually have more topics available: please do contact Angelika Steger or any member of our group to find out more about possible topics. If you have your own ideas or interests, you are also welcome to contact us and talk about possibilities for a tailor-made topic.
Please also consult our guidelines if you are considering writing a thesis with us.
