General Information on Writing a Student Theses at IVV

An essential part of the philosophy of the Institute of Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering ist to interlink current research activities and the teaching programme as closely as possible.

An application is required for a student research project at IVV. Information on the procedure can be downloaded below. Please also use the document to check whether you meet all the necessary requirements for writing a student thesis at the institute. Please also note the relevant deadlines.

Participation in the seminar „Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten“ is recommended for all students who want to write a thesis of any kind at the Institutes of Transport. It is certainly possible and advisable to take part earlier in the course of study (e. g. for Master´s students from the 1st semester onwards). Bachelor students are recommended to attend the seminar before writing their Bachelor thesis.

Topic Selection

On one hand, there is the possibility to work on a topic that arises from the current research activities or dissertation projects of our staff.

Currently, within the scope of the ELISA and scAInce projects, various final theses are available. If you are interested in any of the subject areas listed below, please fill out the application form here.
