Information on Project Theses

Project thesis during your master program at the chair of technology management

The project thesis aims at theoretically rehashing an assignment, which you have been working on during your intership, based on current scientific literature. Following this, you have to make comparisons between the theoretical results and your discoveries from pratice during your internship.

Your project thesis should be structured as follows:

  • Introduction: Introduction of the company (industry, performance specification, relevant numbers etc.) and a brief summery of the assignments during your internship (ca. 1-1,5 pages)
  • Project: Selecting a specific assignment from your scope of duties during your internship and theoretically rehash this assignment on the basis of (the latest) scientific literature (ca. 2 pages)
  • Conclusion: Comparison of theory and pratice: Combining the theories you build in the second part of your thesis with your findings during your internship (ca. 1,5 pages)


Your project thesis must comply with our guide on writing scientific papers.
