If you want to write a thesis with us at seclab, you can either work on one of our topics or your own topic. If you don’t have a topic yourself, then think about what exactly interests you in advance and have some initial thesis ideas. Requests without a concrete topic or ideas will be handled with lower priority.


You should use LaTeX, Pandoc, or Markdown to create your thesis. However, we recommend Microsoft Word if you have no experience with LaTeX, Pandoc, or Markdown. In addition, you should study the topic of technical writing before writing your thesis. We can recommend the book “Technisches Schreiben: (nicht nur) für Informatiker”.

You can write your thesis in German or in English.
