Examples of Bachelor and Master Theses

To illustrate possible topics for Bachelor and Master theses at our chair, this page lists a selection of completed theses. For all projects, we require relevant statistical knowledge (as taught in our courses, for example) as well as very good programming skills in R or Python. The choice of topics is based on the previous knowledge and interests of the students, as well as on our current research topics at the chair. If you are interested, please contact the administration office with your current transcript of records and a short CV.
