Bachelor thesis seminar

level of course unit


Learning outcomes of course unit

Students can
- formulate a task into a project and solve it using scientific methods and practice-oriented tools in the project period, as well as work through this process independently in a scientific paper
- independently narrow down a topic from the field of web-based technologies, web business, or related areas, prepare it scientifically, and independently develop a self-formulated research question
- carry out the process of scientific work independently and in a self-organized manner
- present and discuss the results of their work in the seminar
- use the available resources appropriately and purposefully (in particular time management and research skills)
- write an academic bachelor's thesis according to the standards of academic writing and apply formal requirements of the relevant guidelines (improvement of expressiveness)

prerequisites and co-requisites


course contents

The students report regularly on the progress of their bachelor's thesis during the working process in consultation with the supervisor. In seminar form, they present their current work status in small groups in the form of short presenta-tions and discuss the results of their work in the group. The students receive instructions and templates for writing the bachelor's thesis and, thus, appropriate accompanying academic supervision.
In this course, students write their final bachelor's thesis. They are individually supervised by a lecturer with regard to individual questions.
Within a given period of time, students are required to scientifically address an issue relevant to their studies and training as part of a bachelor's thesis. The topic should be worked on and discussed independently using scientific methods.
The bachelor's thesis can be written with a practical reference from the internship and thus deal with a current and concrete problem scientifically and practically.
