Sponsored Theses

Companies can commission individual thesis projects and benefit from an analytical and practical in-depth look at a defined research area.

Description

Benefits for Your Business

A sponsored thesis project offers an excellent opportunity to both the company and the student to combine science and practice, to conduct application-oriented research and to solve current practical problems. By choosing to sponsor our students’ projects you are commissioning a graduate to conduct research for your organisation under the supervision of an academic expert in the field, with access to the latest technology and facilities in our areas of expertise.

Individual thesis projects provide mutual benefit to business and student. Typically, a student working at Master’s level undertakes a project on a task relevant to business that can be tailored to meet a challenge you face.

You not only benefit from a high calibre student or graduate to work in a research area of strategic importance to you as a sponsor but a talent pipeline for your business and applied work experience for our students. Master’s students who work on a sponsored thesis are provided with a contact person within the commissioning company and an academic supervisor at TU Wien Informatics, ensuring that the work adheres to our high academic and formal standards.
