The initiation of theses are coordinated. If you are interested in writing a thesis at our chair, please send a short letter of motivation, a curriculum vitae and an overview of your grades to: abschlussarbeiten(at)ikm.tu-berlin.de. Please use your campus / TU-Berlin email address.
Since the allocation of theses is centrally managed at our chair, we ask you to consider the following procedure: The application for a thesis is made in one of the research areas described below. In order to be able to assign the thesis to the corresponding academic staff, it is imperative to indicate the abbreviation of the respective research area in the subject line of the email, as these are assigned automatically. Please use the abbreviation in your subject line with square brackets as shown:
[FB 1] Research Area 1: Platform Economy
[FB 2] Research Area 2: Gamification
[FB 4] Research Area 4: Virtual & Augmented Reality
[FB 5] Research Area 5: Blockchain & Platform Governance
[FB N] Research Area N: Own choice of topics and external theses
e.g. „[FB 5] Master's thesis on a platform topic, Melanie Musterfrau“
Please also note:
If you have your own suggestion for a topic that does not fit into any of the research areas mentioned above, you can also apply to us for a thesis on this topic. A specific scientific question should already be available for this.
There is also the possibility of supervision in individual cases for external theses in cooperation with companies that do not fit into any of the research areas but are related to the subject area. To initiate this, please also indicate the research area N ([FB N]).
Please also note that if you assign yourself to FB N, there is no employee who has expertise in the topic you have chosen. Finding a supervisor in the department is therefore less likely and the process takes a little longer.
