Thesis Topics

If you know which topic you would like to choose or which field you are interested in, you must contact a lecturer from the Faculty who you would like to work with as your supervisor. Once you agree on a topic with your supervisor, you have to negotiate its details with him/her. Please note that if your chosen supervisor accepts your topic, you must register for Thesis I (MK3THE1R05HX17-EN) course at the beginning of the semester via the NEPTUN system.

Available topics for students starting in 2020
