Scientific work, study skills
Students choose a topic among a topic-list prepared from the lecturers. They implement an interesting part of the problem, assess the results and write a bachelors thesis about it. Topics arise especially from the elective courses the students attend in the 6th semester, or independent of these courses from research projects in the FH Vorarlberg research centers. It is also possible to work on an individual topic suggested by the student. A list of available topics will be released at the beginning of the semester in March.
By writing a bachelors thesis the students should prove their ability (a) to work for them self on a scientific basis on a specific topic of their subject, (b) to compile a report according to scientific standards and (c) to correctly cite knowledge from the literature.
Depending on the subject of the thesis, the students learn this through an empirical study, a literature study, a planning or design task or a practical project.
