General Information

  • As far as possible, the majority of the thesis topics offered at the chair includes a practical part (hardware/-software development, design etc.)
  • Conventional thesis topics containing only theoretical work and literary research will only be released in exceptional cases
  • The chair sometimes also provides internships followed by a thesis (tagged as Collaboration Thesis)
  • A thesis at the chair isdone in paper format with around 20 pages

Application and assignment process

Application and assignment process
  • Every first Monday of a month, an updated version of available topics will be available at this webpage
  • You will have time to go through the topics and write a one-page exposé on motivation and first approaches /solutions concerning the problem solution
  • On 15th of every month the advisors start to review the exposés (you can still send in your exposés, but remember fist-come-first-serve)
  • After submission of a successful exposé a 4 weeks induction phase starts and results in a 5-page extended abstract.
  • By reading and evaluating the extended abstract, the supervisors decide to continue or abort the collaboration

Thesis categories

Standard and Conceptual
  • Literature research
  • Theoretical processing of models
  • Design concepts
  • Design and execution of test series
  • Dimensioning and design of constructive models
  • E.g. 3D printing, work at simulators like MARS or LuFo support
  • Development, validation and verification of algorithms
  • Further development and adaptation of existing models based on state of research
and Flight Test
  • Development of algorithms
  • Implementation and integration of new components
  • Validation and verification of work in flight tests at an airfield

Non-disclosure notices and confidentiality agreement

With effect from September 1, 2016, no blocking notes and further rules of secrecy beyond the usual duties of secrecy and due diligence are permitted for Bachelor and Master theses. This was decided by Faculty V (Mechanical Engineering and Transportation Systems) of the TU Berlin for all associated Bachelor and Master courses on April 6, 2016.Please also note the following handout of Faculty V:
