Information about Master Projects

The Master Project is a large teamwork project of 2 or more students working on a subject which is closely related to one of the research groups at ifi. It is intensive and demanding but exciting as well covering 18 points of work. We highly recommend to carry it out in the free period between semesters, typically during the summer break.

The Master Project must be concluded by a final report. The report is meant to be a consolidation of fundamental technical achievements and scientific aspects. It reflects and classifies the results of the Master Project in an adequate way.

The project can be started after the completion of the Master-Basemodule. When you gathered a group of fellow students you hand in the application form together with a project description at the student's office.

Master Project Market

In order to support the formation of groups we organize each semester a project market. The project market is an opportunity to network with other students to build Master Project teams. The slides from this semester's market which took place on Nov 9 can be found here:


To support students in forming teams the ICU has as well created a forum for students interested in joining a Master Project.
