Graduate Seminar

The graduate seminar is a forum for scientific discussions. Students have the possibility to discuss their theses amongst fellow students, graduates and the professor of SNET. In the early phase of their work, their thesis approach is discussed, while at the end the results are presented. Students who are currently working on their thesis at our chair are required to attend each of the meetings, especially if other related topics are being presented. We are also looking forward to welcoming other students who are interested in the seminar or are about to write a thesis at our chair.

Additional Information

Students who decide to write a thesis at our chair are required to talk about their topic and the approach they are going to follow in an initial presentation in the early phase of their thesis time. This presentation should take 10 minutes with 5 minutes of questions and answers afterwards.
After finishing their thesis, students have to defend it by giving a talk, in which they demonstrate the results achieved in the thesis. Bachelor students should talk 15 minutes with 5 minutes of questions and answers, whereas Master students are required to present 20 minutes and discuss it afterwards for 10 minutes.

This section covers general topics and frequently asked questions about the organizational process of bachelor, master and diploma theses at our department. Please read this page carefully before contacting one of the supervisors so that you are well prepared when you express your interest and discuss the topics with the supervisors.


The organizational workflow of a bachelor's, master's or diploma thesis at SNET is described below:

  1.  Please, contact the secretariat of the department. The secretariat will check possible options within the team.
  2. You will receive feedback from one of our team members or from the secretariat.
  3. As soon as the contact with a possible supervisor could be established, you discuss the desired topic with him. 
  4. You will have 2-4 weeks to consider and familiarize yourself with the topic.
  5. If you choose this topic, we expect you to write an outline of your thesis in these 2-4 weeks, which we will evaluate. This outline will help you and us clarify the work that needs to be done on your topic.
  6.  In the next graduate seminar, you will have to give a first presentation of your work: 10 minutes + 5 minutes question and answer. When you get the final OK from the professor, you can proceed to step 5.
  7. Register your topic with the Examination Office; from now on, attendance at the Graduate Seminar is mandatory (your email address will be added to a mailing list for invitations, please also check our website regularly).
  8. There may be several graduate seminars and meetings with your advisor while you are working.
  9. Submission of the dissertation; now attendance at the graduate seminar is not mandatory except for the dissertation defense. Bachelor's students give a 15 minute presentation + 5 minutes question and answer, while Master's students give 20 minutes + 10 minutes question and answer.
  10. After the defense, a thesis report with the grade will be sent to the examining authority.

Please note that it must be submitted at least 6 weeks before the end of the semester to ensure that you receive your grade in the same semester. Therefore, you must register your thesis with the Examination Office at least 4 months + 6 weeks for Bachelor's theses and 6 months + 6 weeks for Master's theses prior to submission.

Also when preparing a thesis, please observe the following instructions:

  • Please check the APO of Faculty IV, especially § 13 (Final Theses).
  • Please write your thesis in German (BA)/ English (BA/ MA)
  • The abstract must be written twice, in German and English
  • Please use the LaTeX template of the chair
  • Do not copy text passages without quoting the author (plagiarism)
