Bachelor / Master Theses

Before the Thesis

Approach us!

The group of Prof. Günther regularly offers Bachelor and Master theses in visualization and computer graphics. For an overview of available topics contact, including the following information:

  • Briefly mention which areas of computer graphics you are interested in.
  • Give a short overview of the graphics-related courses you have attended in the past.

We then get back to you shortly to schedule a meeting and go over the available topics together.

Ask all professors!

Choosing the right topic is difficult, even when you already know that you want to work on visualization and/or computer graphics. To get a comprehensive overview of all available topics, it is strongly recommended that you get in touch with all professors, working in the realm of Visual Computing, including:
