The final thesis concludes every Bachelor's and Master's program. It is usually the first time you as students work systematically for a longer time on your own on a single topic and write up the results of this work in a scientific manner. Consequently, it is widely considered a huge and important part of any curriculum and grants up to 1/3 of all credit points a student may earn during their studies. Yet, curricula tend to focus on other topics, leaving many students feel unprepared for this unique challenge.

In this talk, I will share my insights with you on how to write a good final thesis, based on my experience from supervising more than a dozen student theses. I will discuss what, in my experience, works and what does not. In specific, I will discuss how to find a suitable thesis and supervisor and why finding a suitable supervisor is actually important for you. I will also address how to approach scientific work as well as how to structure and write the thesis itself, and prepare the final presentation. After the talk, there will be time for questions.

The talk will take place in O2 on 12th June 2023 at 6:15pm local time (UTC+2) and will be given in English. In case you can't attend, please check out last year's recorded presentation.
