Diploma Candidates Colloquium
In additional to the individual supervision of the diploma / bachelor / master candidate by a research assistant, a colloquium for the candidate students is offered twice a month. The colloquiums' objective is the exchange of knowledge between the participating students, and should thereby encourage them to think “outside the box”.
Participating in the Colloquium is compulsory for all diploma/ bachelor /
master candidates. Candidates who write their thesis externally are
exempted from regular participation. However, all students must present
intermediate findings after three months and final results after six
The colloquium takes place every second and fourth Wednesday of the month, from 2:30 to approx. 4:00 p.m.
Location: Building 01.86 - 281 (seminar room at the Institute)
A 10 minute intermediate presentation, which describes the current status of the research and shows further steps, is required after three months for Diploma and Master students. The intermediate presentation is not marked.
A final thesis presentation is part of the exam requirement, taking place after the completion of the written thesis. The presentation is not marked, but is taken into consideration of the final grade. The presentation should last 20 minutes plus 10 minutes for discussion.
