In a master's thesis a student should demonstrate his or her
ability to work on a computer science topic understanding,
combining, and integrating current lines of research.
Topics are usually drawn from research and/or industrial projects.
The following pre-requisites emphasize general requirements for
work on a thesis. Though, some of them may seem to be obvious,
experience is that they are more than often not.
- Good language skills
- Programming skills
- A sound base in mathematics
- Finding and reading relevant literature
My preferences in thesis language and text system used to write the
thesis are English and LaTeX, respectively. The final level of
scientific quality of the thesis should be such that the main results
can be considered for publication. The following list links
you to more detailed information on specific topics (feel free to
contact me anytime to discuss your interests in a topic and/or own
