Theses

All listed topics are to be considered examples. Please talk to us to discuss potential topics in detail.

You can always ask for topics in the areas of Wireless Networks, Vehicular Communication, Sensor Networks, Distributed Systems, and Embedded Systems.

Meeting

We hold a weekly meeting for all bachelor and master students to shortly discuss the current status of each thesis and to help with problems. The meeting is held not in room F1.406 but online each Wednesday at 18:00h.
