Offers for Bachelor and Master Theses

In the section "Current Theses", you'll find our currently available Bachelor and Master theses. The topic of each thesis is usually closely linked to a research topic of a scientific employee, who is offering the topic.

If you are interested in a specific topic, please contact (phone, e-mail) the corresponding employee directly and arrange for a nonbinding conversation. Even if you are not fully convinced a certain thesis would be best suited for you, it will be beneficial to initiate a contact, if you find the topic appealing. Often such conversations lead to new ideas and we have the flexibility to respond to your interests and skills by adapting the topic. Should you have questions about the general procedure, or are interested a topic that's not listed below, please contact Dr. Holger Jäkel.

The section "Finished Theses" contains a list of finished theses. These should give you an idea about the research topics previously processed by the employees of the institute. Possibly, you will have the opportunity to continue on or another of these topics. A guideline here is also to contact the employee and arrange a nonbinding conversation.

If you have an own idea or suggestion for a theses that is not listed here, please contact Holger Jäkel! We are always willing and interested to purse new and interesting directions in communications engineering.

Also note that some of the topics listed below are in German. If you require assistance in translating the contents, please do not hesitate to contact us.

ETIT Project

As an alternative to the industrial internship, you can conduct multiple interesting projects at the CEL in the broad scope of communications. You can conduct the projects either alone or in a group. For more details, please do not hesitate to contact us.
