Problems not solutions

For your competence development as students, we provide case- and problem-oriented learning environments that are often integrated into current research. As students, you are active players in the learning modules and are given freedom to engage with the subject-specific and methodological study content.

At the same time, we never leave you alone and are always available as a contact person, especially in the advanced, method-intensive modules. In this way, we give the process of independent learning an equal status alongside the externally controlled imparting of knowledge.

Development of competences

The following overarching teaching goals are at the forefront of our courses:

  • Learning subject-specific skills and abilities as a basis for professional development
  • .
  • Training in methods of accessing information and imparting knowledge as the basis of all learning and collaboration
  • .
  • Training in analytical, solution-oriented ways of thinking and acting and the associated competence to be able to successfully deal with unknown and frequently changing problems
  • .
  • Learning methods for transdisciplinary cooperation as a further building block for an analytical, solution-oriented way of working
  • .
  • Promoting personal development specifically with regard to the further development of personal and social-communicative competence
  • .


If you want to write a thesis with us, we neither expect you to already have mature programming skills, extensive experience in the field of GIS and remote sensing, module certificates in the field of database management or your own R scripts in Google code.

What we expect
We expect commitment. Once we have agreed on a topic, we expect you to be fully committed and work on the task. The first conceptual proposal for a solution to a problem should always come from you. General assessment criteria for BSc theses or MSc theses can be found below

What to expect
If you are committed to your work, you can be sure that we will be too. You will have a supervisory team that is available for discussion and will guide you through the final paper.
