Advantages of thesis supervision by the FZI

Insights into Practice

You are looking for practical experience? At the FZI, we do research with and for companies and give you valuable insights into projects. Many students are also employed as a research assistant at the FZI for another subject and thus get to know our FZI culture and everyday life.

Thesis of Relevance

You want to do research on a particularly relevant topic? The results of your thesis will flow into current FZI research projects. This way, you can shape the future together with us.

First-class Research Laboratories

At the FZI House of Living Labs you will find a first-class research environment equipped with the latest hardware and software. You may use these for your research as part of your thesis.

Thesis as a Door Opener

If you, like many FZI employees, first get to know us through a research assistant job or a thesis, you have a big advantage over external applicants: You can already establish valuable contacts at the FZI.

You want to learn more? Then get to know your future colleagues and gain even more insights into our everyday work at the FZI.

My thesis is integrated into a real research project. It is really fantastic that I can contribute my own ideas. I can also define the way I solve the issues in my thesis myself, and my supervisor and other students from my team always support me with constructive and helpful feedback.

I decided to write my thesis with the FZI because I was convinced by the range of relevant, practice-oriented research topics – linked with theoretical issues through the close cooperation with KIT. It was the right decision! The supervision was also reliable and competent.

I really appreciated the collaboration and scientific exchange at the FZI already as a student – first as a research assistant, then as an intern, and later as a master's student. The exciting insight into research was a valuable addition to my studies and had a great influence on my path after graduation: I wanted to stay committed to science – and got the chance to do so at the FZI!

Together with our students, we regularly participate in competitions – such as the Audi Autonomous Driving Cup, in which they develop fully automated driving functions and the necessary software architectures.

Exciting Topics

The topics of the theses we (co-)supervise are always particularly practical: Marc, for example, developed a concept for the use of autonomous driving in a ride at Europa-Park.
