- a short motivation statement,

- and the processing period you require (from/to),

or with your own suggestions or wishes

The more specific you are in your description of a desired topic, the faster and better we can respond to it. Ideally, but not absolutely necessary, you should submit a short exposé in addition to the topic, in which you explain the background and, if applicable, define a research question (with a security-relevant aspect)


Before registering the thesis, regardless of possible collaborations with other parties, you agree on the exact topic by means of a proposal or exposé. You will develop and formulate a research question under supervision.

This proposal consists of 4-6 pages and ideally consists of the following chapters:

1. Introduction

2. Fundamentals / Background

3. Related work

4. Methodology

5. Schedule (preferably Gantt chart)

6. Limitations / Outlook (optional)

If all parties agree to the proposal, the work can be registered.
