Thesis Projects

The research group Practical Computer Science offers thesis projects for PhD students, graduate and undergraduate students. Available topics range from cloud computing over data management to scheduling and projects cover theoretical as well as practical aspects. One general objective of the thesis projects is the teaching of practical skills and cutting edge technologies to prepare students for their jobs. Last, but not least, students can benefit from synergies between the research group and the university's data centre GWDG to validate their research results through relevant applications and usage scenarios.
