Vortragsreihe "Scientific Working"

Im zweijährigen Rhythmus bieten die Matiker in Kooperation mit der Fachschaft Mathematik/Informatik der Universität Paderborn Vorträge zum Thema »Aufbau und Gestaltung wissenschaftlicher Arbeiten und Vorträge« an. Die Vortragsreihe beschäftigt sich mit den Problemen, die beim Schreiben wissenschaftlicher Arbeiten entstehen. Dabei wird sowohl auf inhaltliche als auch gestalterische Elemente eingegangen.

Die Veranstaltungen richten sich in erster Linie an Studierende, die bisher keine oder wenig Erfahrungen mit wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten haben. Allerdings kann sie auch eine sinnvolle Auffrischung für höhere Semester sein, z.B. direkt vor der Bachelor- oder Masterarbeit.

Scientific Working

How to write a great Master thesis

The recording is now online, too!

The final thesis concludes every Bachelor's and Master's program. It is usually the first time students work systematically for a longer time on their 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, often leaving students feeling unprepared for this unique challenge.

In this talk, I will share my insights on how to write a good master 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 any student. 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 my talk, there will be time for questions.

The talk will take place online on June 14th at 7pm local time (UTC+2), at https://open-bbb.uni-paderborn.de/b/har-tz9-i7y-hy4 and will be given in English. The talk will also be recorded for those who cannot attend.
