External bachelor / master thesis

Before we set up an external thesis, a signed confirmation letter of the supervisor from the company (pdf-file sent to hes@ei.tum.de  by Email) that he will supervise and instruct you to the best possible extend and that he will adhere to the Academic and Examination Regulations of BSEI/MSEI/MSCE/MSPE http://www.ei.tum.de/studium/ . If this is done you can stop by with your filled in form “Admission for The Master Thesis” (or Admission for the Bachelor thesis) which you will get from the Student Services Office and we will register you for the thesis. Or you can send the original signed form by mail (I need the original form signed by you - no pdf/scan!) or leave it with the secretary. Then you can begin with your thesis. More information about the master/bachelor thesis can be obtained from here:

A template (.dotx-file) for the layout of a Bachelor or Master thesis can be downloaded here (win) or here (tex). You do not need to adhere to a specific font and font size, but the typical layout and elements are shown in the template. 

The frontpage is mandatory.

An example of good structured thesis with readable figures can be seen in the folder
\\nas.ads.mwn.de\tuei\hes\public\example\    (Example_Masters_Thesis_Layout_Figures_Figure_Captions.pdf).
(You need to be logged in to the TUM network to have access or use web-access https://webdisk.ads.mwn.de/ and navigate to the folder \tuei\hes\public\example\ )
In the same folder you will also find recommendations (Dos and Don'ts in your writing and presentation.pdf) for writing the thesis and doing your presentations.

6 month (full time) after you have started your thesis, you will submit your final version by sending
a pdf-file of your thesis (no printed version!) to hes@ei.tum.de. Please share big files and/or sensitive data via https://gigamove.rz.rwth-aachen.de . 1-3 weeks after final submission of your thesis, you will give a 20 minute long presentation (no mandatory format) with Q&A about your work on an individual appointment on short notice. The master thesis will be rated - the presentation not.
