Learning outcomes:
_        After completing their thesis, students will be able to structure and work on a given topic from the field of industrial engineering independently within a given period of time in accordance with the methods of scientific work.
_        The Master´s thesis, which is supervised by university lecturers, allows students to demonstrate their ability to work on problems and tasks using the theoretical knowledge acquired during their studies and in accordance with the methods of scientific work, thus making them qualified for scientific work in professional practice.
_        Students will be able to research the available scientific findings and develop their own theoretical concepts and models.
_        The successful completion of their Master´s thesis formally entitles graduates to work on their PhD.

Module content:
The Master´s thesis is a written thesis. Students´ results will be presented and evaluated in a colloquium with regard to their problems and the solutions found (see corresponding module description).
As a rule, students are given a practical and application-oriented topic. Students then independently research the available scientific findings, carry out analyses and formulate their theses. In order to accomplish the objectives set in their Master´s thesis, students must conduct their own empirical/theoretical research. This allows them to develop their own theories and models, which they then verify or disprove according to scientific criteria.
The thesis topics are usually coordinated with the supervising lecturer(s) and stem from current research and development projects from the field of indutrial engineering at the htw saar. The subject of the thesis can also be selected and defined in cooperation with one or more university lecturers, companies or industrial enterprises.

Teaching methods/Media:
The media used will depend on the respective topic. In principle, the thesis must be submitted in multiple copies in paper form (see the examination regulations for details) and also in electronic form (e.g. CD, DVD; accepted electronic formats are PDF, Word document, OpenOffice document).
The basic rules of scientific work must be observed in the thesis.
