Research Project

As part of the elective courses in the specialization phase during the 3rd semester, a research project can be chosen.

All specialization areas feature a dedicated interdisciplinary character with lecture courses taken from the extensive repertoire of advanced lectures of the faculties participating in KSOP. The lectures are complemented by an optional ‘Research Project’ (4 CP) giving the students a first introduction into on-going research of one of the KSOP groups.

The project work will be performed with the related supervisor, the date is to be fixed individually. The topics can be assigned to different students.
The format can be:

  • a 1,5 week block course in the semester break
  • a consecutive work of 4h/week during the entire semester


A written report of approx. 10 pages (at the discretion of the supervisor) concludes the course and will be graded by the supervisor.

The topic of the research project has to be found by the students themselves. For your orientation you can have a look at former topics in the project list.
Please contact the supervising tutor directly.
