The overriding goal of energy technology and energy industry research is to design technically and economically feasible paths towards a sustainable, secure and economical energy supply. To achieve this goal, research projects at ie3 are designed and worked on. The tasks for bachelor and master theses are based on current research questions and are formulated as a narrowly defined technical-scientific problem. While working on your bachelor or master thesis you will then be part of a team of scientists and students of electrical engineering, information technology and industrial engineering.

Here you can find a list of currently open or suggested theses topics for Bachelor Theses (BT) and Master Theses (MT). If you already have your own idea of a thesis that would fit contentwise to one of our Research Groups, feel free to contact them with your idea directly! In addition, we also supervise external theses, as long as it fits our portfolio of tasks.

Note: Usually theses can be written and submitted either in German or English language, please communicate your language preference with your supervisor upfront!
