Further Information

Betreuung von Abschlussarbeiten  

Die Studierenden unseres Fachbereiches erstellen Ihre Bachelor-Thesis zum großen Teil als externe Arbeiten, also außerhalb der Hochschule. Dies begrüße ich als wichtigen Praxisbezug des Studiums. Oftmals stellt die Abschlussarbeit auch den Kontakt zum zukünftigen Arbeitgeber her.

Die Initiative für eine Abschlussarbeit geht üblicherweise von den Studierenden aus. Sie informieren sich über mögliche Themen auf dem jährlichen Unternehmenstag, Aushängen und Stellenanzeigen (Print und Online). Direktbewerbungen, oft auf Empfehlungen früherer Semester, sind ebenfalls häufig.

Falls Sie als Firma Abschlussarbeiten anbieten wollen, empfehle ich eine Teilnahme am Unternehmenstag der Hochschule sowie Aushänge, die wir gerne in unserem Fachbereich aushängen. Für Aushänge bietet sich ein DIN-A4 Format, möglicherweise farbig, an. Bitte schicken Sie einen Ausdruck oder ein PDF an unser Sekretariat.

Vertraulichkeit: Der Inhalt der Abschlussarbeit kann ganz oder teilweise vertraulich behandelt werden. Bitte beachten Sie aber, dass der Titel der Arbeit auf dem Zeugnis des Studierenden genannt wird und üblicherweise im Lebenslauf genannt wird. Darum ist der Titel der Abschlussarbeit nicht vertraulich. Auch ein nicht vertrauliches Abstract muss der Arbeit beigefügt werden.
