Our examiners offer two variants for oral exams: online and presence exams. You need to register with HIS Online Portal. Take care that you select the desired variant. After registration, please turn to our secretariat to negotiate a time slot. Our secretaries can be reached in room O27-349, by phone under +49.731.50.24140 or via this e-mail address.
In the exam you should have a photo ID at hand.
The following table summarises the two variants offered by our examiners:
Oral Exam in Presence
Regularly, the exam will be in room Raum O27-341. Please wear a face musk until you get the permission to take it down. Unregister from the exam and do not come to university, if you have symptoms of SARS-CoV-2, you had close contact to a SARS-CoV-2 case, or you have been quarantined.
Oral Online Exam
For an online exam, the examinee needs to fulfill the following requirements:
- a camera, showing the examinee with their upper part of the body at a neutral place (no aids) without external distraction,
- a microphone that can record the intelligible voice of the examinee,
- a computer with sufficient Internet connection able to communicate audio and video.
The examinee can see and hear examiner and minute taker. The minute taker writes a protocol as usual. It is not allowed to record the session, neither by the examiner nor by the examinee.
The examiner can abort the exam, if they come to the conclusion that
- the examinee uses illegal aids,
- the quality of the connection does not allow a proper exam.
In case of abortion, the exam will be repeated at a later time. With registration to an oral online exam (these are clearly marked in the registration system), the examinee accepts the special conditions mentioned above.
Written examinations must be registered for at least four days before the examination date. Subsequent registration is not possible. Please observe the deadlines. Registration always takes place via the HIS Online Portal.
Please bring your student ID or another photo ID with you to the written examination. Please note the aids permitted for the respective examination. We ask you to wear a mask during the examination.
Be sure to sign out of the exam and do not come, if you have symptoms of SARS-Cov-2, have had close contact with a confirmed case or have been quarantined.
Students will be informed of the inspection options for written examinations after they have been corrected. Always bring a student ID or other photo ID with you for inspection. Objections to the correction must be submitted in writing. At the inspection, there are appropriate forms that students can fill out. Photography is not permitted during the inspection.
Please also note the relevant additional information in the announcements.
Do not come to the inspection, if you have symptoms of SARS-CoV-2, have been in contact with infected persons or are under quarantine.
Compensations for Disadvantages
In case you got the right for compensations for any disadvantages, please contact the examiner and the teaching assistant responsible for the exercises earlier than two weeks before the exam. If you do not notify us in time, we do not feel obliged to provide compensations.
For a current list of advertised Bachelor's or Master's theses, please see our Theses page. You can find advertised project theses on the Individual Projects page. However, you are also welcome to ask individual team members and professors of the institute personally for theses, as sometimes topics arise at short notice.
Theses and projects follow a fixed pattern. At the beginning, after the first contact with the supervisor, a proposal text has to be written in which students describe the given task in their own words, divide it into work steps and schedule it over the available working time. Depending on the type of work, this is followed by a proposal presentation in which the project is presented. At the end there is always an elaboration as well as a final presentation, which may also include a demo. In the case of master's theses, an intermediate presentation is also planned. Further details can be provided by the supervisor.
