Leitfaden zu Ablauf und Themenbelegung

  • Allgemein gilt für die studentische Arbeit die jeweils aktuelle Fachprüfungsordnung der Fakultät für Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik.
  • Zur schriftlichen Ausarbeitung kann die am Lehrstuhl erhältliche LaTeX/MikTeX-Vorlage(n) verwendet werden – dies ist jedoch nicht obligatorisch.
  • Der Umfang der schriftlichen Ausarbeitung sollte den Erfordernissen der jeweiligen studentischen Arbeit gerecht werden. Überlegen Sie, was Sie von einer schriftlichen Ausarbeitung erwarten, wenn sie selbst der Leser sind. Es ist kaum zu erwarten, dass man die Ergebnisse einer wissenschaftlichen Untersuchung in 10 Seiten vernünftig darstellen kann – andererseits ist auch nicht zu erwarten, dass ein Leser von einer sehr umfangreichen Arbeit begeistert sein wird. Eine sehr umfangreiche Ausarbeitung muss die Benotung nicht unbedingt positiv beeinflussen. Die Abgabe der Arbeit sollte, wenn möglich, in gebundener Form erfolgen.

Student Seminars

Every student should do at least one presentation in our student seminar

  • A student seminar is a seminar where all students present their work. It usually starts at 14:00 and can last till 20:00. Seminars are held every 1-1.5 months.
  • Bachelor/Master thesis students have to do two presentations during the time of the thesis: intermediate presentation (15 minutes) and final presentation (15 minutes). It is up to the student and his/her supervisor to decide when to present. The intermediate presentation shall be used to present the project, results, and next steps.
  • All other students are required to do only a final presentation.
  • A .ppt template is available for the presentation upon request.

EAL student's internal form

Please use the EAL student's internal form once only at the beginning of a student-topic (e.g. MSc, BSc, Research Internship, Project Course, ...) at our chair. This form helps us to manage the access to our rooms and workplaces for our students.

(This form is not valid for the Student Seminar Registration.)

about Internships at our chair


We do not accept internships of undergraduate students any more.

Due to very bad experiences in the past we do not accept internships from undergraduate students any more.

We have been happy to provide possibilities for undergraduate students in the past even when the benefit for our institute in doing that was always marginal if any. Of course, we did not pay the students for coming to us, but we offered to them possibilities to learn practical work.

In the past the students selected expected from us extensive administrative effort in filling out dozens of forms. Amongst others, they expected us to describe a research project they would work in. With respect to the very low educational level of the candidates, however, it is just not possible to assign them to a research project. We can help them to learn practical engineering work, but their skills are not sufficient to be assigned to a specific research project.

Normally we accepted a limited number of internship students every year, however, we do not have the time and resources to write out many forms or paper work – a single invitation letter must be sufficient. We are a Research Institute and we do not have the staff to satisfy exhaustive administrative requirements. We do not need any forms ourselves. It cannot be our own responsibility to fill out hundreds of forms. The effort in writing lots of emails to each candidate in the past initiated our decision not to take part in that program any more.
