Course: Bachelor's thesis

Bachelor mechanical engineering

With the bachelor's thesis, which completes the course of study, students demonstrate that they are capable of independently working on a defined engineering task under supervision within a specified period of time, thus contributing scientifically justified theoretical and practical knowledge to the solution of a problem. The task can be of a practical or theoretical nature, it corresponds to the advanced state of knowledge in marine engineering and usually deals with a problem occurring in professional life or it contributes to investigations in the context of research work. Topics will be announced by notice board, the staff is available for questions in this regard!

Integration into the course of studies

The module is usually attended in the 6th semester. Topics will be announced on the notice board, the staff will be happy to answer any questions!
