You can either work on a topic listed at the institute (see “current selection of topics for your master’s thesis”), or on an individually picked topic.
Master theses are supervised by
- Univ.-Prof. Mag. Dr. Paolo Rondo-Brovetto
Any preliminary assessment:
- Univ.-Ass.in Cornelia Klein, BSc. MSc.
- Univ.-Ass.in Anna Oppelmayer, MSc. Bakk.a
- Mag.a Dr.in Birgit Moser, MSc. BBakk.a — currently on leave —
The institute will assign the supervisor according to the topic and resources of the supervisors. Your individual supervisor preferences will be taken into account as far as possible.
The following steps must be followed before you begin your research and writing process for the master’s thesis:
- Choose a topic (listed/individually chosen)
- Write your exposé (see “template for your exposé”)
- Mail your request to Karin Falkenburg (puma [dot] office [at] aau [dot] at) and include the following information:
- your topic
- your preference for supervision
- your exposé attached as a pdf file
Your request will be forwarded to possible supervisors. You will promptly receive an answer from your possible supervisor with a date proposal for a first personal supervision consultation. During the personal consultation, the final topic and the methodology of the scientific work will be defined. The choice of a suitable methodology will be made in consideration of your research context and on the basis of your previous knowledge and qualifications
- Once you have received a verbal confirmation of supervision, you need to submit your application for supervision of your master’s thesis or diploma dissertation electronically (see student Portal “My Applications”). The application is reviewed and electronically approved by the office of academic affairs
You can only be admitted to the course “Seminar for master’s thesis” when you have completed the described procedure. Please make sure that you reserve enough time for the required steps!
Please note the detailed information on scientific papers (submission, plagiarism check, grading etc.) on the master’s theses and diploma dissertations page. You will also find information on the new possibility of getting a phased evaluation of your master’s thesis on this page.
