Bachelor thesis KTI

Writing a thesis is an important part of your bachelor programme. The chair group KTI (Knowledge, Technology and Innovation) can supervise BCL, BGM, BIN, BBC and BVG bachelor theses.

Selecting a topic

The first step in working on a bachelor thesis is the selection of a topic. You can either develop your own topic or select an available topic from the KTI group. Please note that the topic of your thesis must always be approved by your supervisor.

You are advised to choose a topic that is close to the research being carried out by the chair group, to ensure suitable supervision and guidance. As soon as you have made up your mind, contact the KTI thesis coordinator Joanne Leerlooijer. After discussing the possible topic(s) and completed courses, she can direct you to a possible KTI supervisor.

If you need some inspiration, here are some options:

  • Check the available topics below
  • Attend KTI thesis colloquia of fellow students
