One person gives book to other person.

The submission of a thesis is required for the successful completion of the bachelor program electrical engineering (Elektrotechnik). Hence the course Project and Seminar in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (434.201) is intended to be a part of the curriculum.

The preparation of the bachelor thesis will be supervised at the IEE as a part of these courses. The amount of work corresponds to the hours of work of the courses, the intensity of the work by the student depending on whether the paper is written independently or not. Registration for the seminar is done either by the supervisor or independently by the student.


The choice of topic is important for a Bachelor thesis. The topic should meet the interests of the student and provide an introduction to an in depth topic for the Master program. Provided that they fit the research interests of the IEE, the institute gladly accepts student- proposed topics. In addition, the IEE regularly advertises Bachelor thesis topics to give appropriate ideas for students. In any case, if the student is interested, he/she can contact an assistant at the IEE. These topics can be found on the notice board of the institute as well as on our homepage.

The Thesis can be started at any time and is to be supervised by an assistant at the IEE. At the end of the thesis, the student is to present the thesis report and a final presentation at the Institute. Once the student has decided on a topic and has discussed this with the supervisor, registration for the course 434 201 Elektro-/ Informationstechnisches Seminarprojekt at the TUG Online portal will provide access to relevant documents for the thesis. Organizational issues concerning this course are processed via the TU Graz TeachCentre. Access to the TeachCentre is achieved using your business card in TUG Online. Documents relevant to the thesis are:

  • Template for Microsoft Word document
  • Style of the presentation
  • Documents for scientific work
  • Information on the organization of projects
  • Information on presentation techniques

These documents are intended to provide non-technical assistance in the drafting of the thesis.

Open topics

The theses advertised by our institute can be found in the TeachCenter in the IEE Bachelor theses course. If you are interested, simply contact the specified supervisor.

You can also submit your own topic requests, provided that they fit the IEE topic.
