A Master thesis with the Knowledge, Technology and Innovation (KTI) group allows you to become an expert in a specific area of the innovation and communication arena that is closely linked to your personal interest and future career. Under close supervision of a staff member you will thoroughly engage in a full research cycle.
If it is not possible to do an internship because of the corona crisis you can replace your internship with a minor thesis of 24 ects. A minor thesis can be a research based on literature and can be expanded with for instance online interviews (but not necessary). You can find BSc topics for literature studies that might also be suitable for a MSc minor thesis at the Bachelor thesis page.
Selecting of a topic
The first step in working on a Master thesis is the selection of a topic. You can either develop your own thesis topic or select an available thesis topic. It is advised, to choose a topic that is close to the research being carried out by the chair group, in order to ensure proper supervision and guidance. Please note that your supervisor must always approve the topic of your thesis.
If you need some inspiration, here are some options:
- Check the available thesis topics below
- Have a look at the fields of interest of our staff below
- Have a look at the list of previous thesis topics
- Attend thesis colloquia of fellow students
Be sure to read the MSc thesis documents (contract and manual) required for the Master Thesis.

As soon as you have made up your mind, or if you need any assistance, contact our thesis coordinator Joanne Leerlooijer (firstname.lastname@example.org). After discussing the possible topic(s) and the courses you have followed, she may direct you to a possible supervisor for your thesis.
