During the colloquium, students will discuss the research question and the main outline of their Master's thesis with their supervisor and the chair as well as other students working on their theses in the same semester. They will present their research proposal and their main results during the colloquium. They will also participate in the discussion of other students' proposals.
Feedback during the colloquium presentations and discussions will provide guidance for students that are currently working on their thesis. During presentations, potential problems can be identified and corrected at an early stage. Furthermore, students learn to work independently on larger research projects and to structure and present results.
