Doctoral Thesis Topics

The first step towards your doctoral degree is to find the topic of your thesis. Have a look at our open topics, and browse recently completed theses.

Open Topics

Finding an exciting thesis topic is crucial — after all, you will spend years of your life researching it. Typically a supervisor offers topics that fit into a larger research context within their group, like long-term vision, projects, or Doctoral Colleges. Your benefit in choosing one of these topics is that some may come with funding, and you can build on existing experience and infrastructure within an established research group.
