Bachelor and Master's Theses

  • You can always ask for topics in the areas of Wireless Networks, Vehicular Communication, Sensor Networks, Distributed Systems, and Embedded Systems.
  • We hold a weekly meeting for all bachelor and master students to shortly discuss the current status of each thesis and to help with problems. The meeting is held in room F1.541 each Wednesday at 18:00h
  • Some information on "how to write a thesis" can be found here
  • We provide a CCS proposal LaTeX template (zip) for your bachelor / master's thesis proposal.
  • We provide a CCS thesis LaTeX template (zip) for your bachelor / master's thesis. Please stick closely to this layout.
  • The information (DES group or CMS group) indicates, which group (Distributed Embedded Systems or Cooperative Mobile Systems) provides the thesis.
