The students are able to formulate a task into a project and to solve it with academic methods and practice-oriented tools during the project period, as well as to process this process independently in an academic work. The graduates are able to: - Independently define a topic from the field of web-based technologies, web-business or related fields, to academically prepare it and to independently develop a self-formulated research question, - to carry out the process of academic work autonomously and in a self-organized manner, - to present and discuss the results of their work in the seminar, - to use the available resources appropriately and purposefully (in particular time management, research skills), - to prepare an academic Bachelor thesis according to the standards of academic work and the formal requirements of the corresponding guidelines (improvement of the ability to express oneself), - to prepare an academic Bachelor thesis according to the standards of academic work and the formal requirements of the corresponding guidelines (improvement of the ability to express oneself).
prerequisites and co-requisites
Courses of the previous semester successfully completed.
The students regularly report on the progress of their Bachelor thesis during the editing process in coordination with their supervisor. In seminar-like form, they present their current work status in small groups in the form of short presentations and discuss the results of their work in the group.
The students receive instructions and templates for the preparation of their Bachelor thesis and thus the corresponding accompanying academic supervision.
In this course the students write their final Bachelor thesis. They are individually supervised by a lecturer with regard to individual questions.
Within a given period of time, the students should academically research a question relevant to their studies and education within the framework of a Bachelor thesis. The topic is to be dealt with and discussed independently using academic methods.
The Bachelor thesis can be written with a practical reference from the internship and thus academically and practically deal with a current and tangible problem.
