We would appreciate it if you would like to write your thesis at the Chair of Circular Economy. In addition to your motivation for scientific topics of the circular economy, the bioeconomy and sustainability assessment, it is beneficial that you have dealt with our teaching and research areas through elective courses, e.g. project studies or seminars beyond the compulsory courses we offer.

You will receive further information in an initial meeting with the thesis supervisor. The topic, aim and scope of the thesis will then be concretised with the supervisor and matched to the qualification level (Bachelor’s or Master’s). In addition to the advertised topics, topics suggested by you are also possible if they fulfil the requirements for an academic thesis and the supervisory capacity allows.

Open topics
  • Decarbonizing steelmaking: Assessing the social impacts of green steel production (read more…)
  • CO2 footprint optimization with re-refinates – requirements, added value and effects for industrial companies (read more…)

If you are interested in one of these or other topics, please apply using the form linked below. This will then be forwarded to the potential supervisors. Please refrain from submissions via e-mail or submitting multiple requests.
