Module content:
In a short presentation - held freely - students will explain the objectives, content and results of their thesis. Then the examiners and other scientific listeners will pose questions regarding the theses, its content, methods and theories. The presentation itself and the student´s answers during the discussion will be evaluated.
The thesis defense should not exceed 45 minutes plus the subsequent discussion.
In principle, it is possible to hold the colloquium as an open event, so that, among other things, representatives of the companies that made it possible for the student to work on their topic, but also representatives of the press, can participate in the colloquium. In this way, the industrial engineering group can also contribute to the public debate. The colloquium can also take place in the company that selected the topic of the thesis.
