Bachelor Thesis
401-2000-00LScientific Works in Mathematics Information
Target audience:
Third year Bachelor students;
Master students who cannot document to have received an adequate training in working scientifically.

Mandatory for all Bachelor and Master students with matriculation in the autumn semester 2014 or later.
Optional for Bachelor and Master students with matriculation until or before the spring semester 2014.
Example: You matriculated in the autumn semester 2013 into the first semester of the Bachelor programme, are now in the third year and plan to matriculate in the autumn semester 2016 into the first semester of the Master programme. In this case, you don't need "Scientific Works in Mathematics" in order to complete the Bachelor degree, but for the Master degree you will need it. In this case, we recommend that you register for "Scientific Works in Mathematics" in the spring semester 2016.
