Students are prepared in three seminars to work in the framework of their diploma thesis, which is conceived as a research project. Emphasis is put on the proper planning of individual activities, choosing the right research question and setting up a timetable of activities. Some of the programs developed for project management are briefly demonstrated. During the seminar, the students prepare a "mini-project" for their diploma thesis.
