Cooperation with Diploma Theses
Students, supervised by a professor, have up to 6 months to solve a problem for you.
| In the last semester of their studies, students at the Department of
Geoinformatics and Surveying usually prepare their diploma theses. They
can select a topic from a continually-updated list of possible projects,
but they also have the option of proposing their own topic. Each diploma
thesis is supervised by a member of the teaching staff. It must be finished
within 6 months. About 10% of the theses are prepared outside Germany and
some are written in English.
Since a practical orientated education is important to us, we try to
cooperate with external partners for as many diploma theses as possible.
We always appreciate opportunities to collaborate with commercial and
government agencies. Experience shows that such cooperation offers advantages
for all parties involved; the student and the university keep in contact
with the business world while the external partners achieves the solution
to a problem for which they may not otherwise have the capacity. i3mainz
benefits by hring new graduates to work on research and development projects.
The external partner often covers any required extra expenditures resulting
from project work that the student incurrs. On occasion students are compensated
