How do I write my Bachelor or Master Thesis in the Neural Information Processing Group?
We offer BSc and MSc theses in the context of our current research. We typically do not maintain a list of pre-prepared thesis projects but try and create research projects matching your interests with those of the researchers in our group. If you are interested in doing your BSc or MSc thesis with us please follow the steps below:
- To do research with us you need to have a solid cognitive science or psychology background (perception, cognition) as well as good knowledge in statistics and programming (MATLAB or python). Ideally you have also prior experience in machine learning. If you don't, please take the relevant courses before applying to work with us.
- Familiarise yourself with our latest research (last three to five years). You find all our publications here. Read the papers that you find most interesting in detail and write down your own comments and think about potential extensions.
- Send an email to Prof. Felix Wichmann describing your research interests and project ideas. Mention the papers you find most interesting and, very important, include your comments on them to show that you have read them thoroughly! In addition please attach your CV to the email.
We will then try and match your interest to one of our research projects.
