Bachelor's/Master's Thesis

A thesis partnership with a KLU student can give your company the unique opportunity to integrate the latest research and current academic insights into your daily business. The thesis time frame is 3 to 5 months from August - January or March - July each year. A professor will act as the student‘s academic supervisor and provide the necessary support during the entire thesis period. You can agree on the topic and offer suggestions directly to the student. We would be happy to post your thesis topic description on our job portal and establish contact with the relevant faculty member.
