Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to successfully master the requirements for a diploma thesis, from the selection of the topic to the organization, design and submission of the work.


Subject of course

The seminar consists of individual discussions on the progress of the diploma (by appointment) and group meetings. On these five dates, the progress of the work is discussed together and there is also the opportunity to analyse text samples in the group, as well as to discuss conservation concepts and design issues. These joint discussions serve not only to exchange experiences, but also to promote networking between the students. Difficulties and unanswered questions can be discussed in a small setting.
