Every year, we present our new open bachelor’s thesis topics and award prizes to excellent students who contributed to scientific publications this past year. If you’re interested in joining us for your bachelor’s thesis in security, this is the best way to get an impression of our topics as well as how a bachelor’s thesis at IAIK works: You’ll hear about our research areas and current hot topics, our Bachelor@IAIK program where you can work on your thesis together with your fellow students in one of our offices if you like, and maybe you’ll get to know your supervisor while chatting over some sandwiches and pizza. The event will start right after the Information Security lecture – we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
We will have a first information session for “Bachelor@IAIK 2020” and the how-to on November 29th, 2019 at 12:00, right after the Information Security lecture.
During December and January we ask students to pick some project together with an advisor.
Get active, talk to anyone of us; we will help you finding your project. To participate in “Bachelor@IAIK”, you need reach an agreement with an advisor before the start of the project in February.
We offer 2 “intensive blocks” of work at IAIK. These blocks are put into time slots which do not interfere with the usual lecture times. These blocks have a duration of 9-10 work days. This is the plan:
Nov 29: Presentation of topics. Get informed. Location: IAIK, Inffeldgasse 16a, ground floor.
December – January: Decide whether you want to participate and start reading.
Feb 24 – March 6: 1st working block.
Feb 29: Writing Lab (optional)
- April 13 – April 24: 2nd working block – home office due to COVID-19
April 25-26: Presentation Lab (optional, including Lightning/Practice Talks) – canceled due to COVID-19
June 5 15:00-15:45: Final presentations – virtual presentations in WebEx due to COVID-19, join with the credentials given here
Coronavirus update: Due to the COVID-19 regulations, the scheduled in-person meetings starting in April cannot take place. Please get in contact with your supervisor to agree on a working mode that works for you. Stay healthy!
These two blocks constitute roughly 150 hours of work. During these hours, we would like
to help you to research a topic,
to help you to structure your project,
to help you to become better in scientific writing in our “Writing Lab”,
to show you how we work,
to ask you to participate in our project meetings,
to offer you to get to know us better,
to offer you to discuss your ideas with us,
to encourage you to master with us times which need tedious work,
to explain to you what it means to work in science and engineering,
and much more.
