Bachelor's Thesis

Bachelor's Thesis are written in the course Seminar aus Statistik

  • The formal supervision is held by the lectorer of the seminar. 
  • The content-related supervisian can be performed by any member of IFAS with a doctoral degree. 

Members of the IFAS with Phd. supervise Bachelor and Master theses in Statistics , preferably in the following areas and serve as examiners for the Master’s examination:

Duller

Nonparametric Statistics

Futschik

Modelling of High-Dimensional Data, Approximative Inference, Biostatistics and Modelling of Genomic Data

Grün

Computational Statistics, Cluster Analysis, Mixture Distributions

Müller

Experimental Design, Econometrics, Spatial Statistics

Quatember

Survey Statistics and related topics

Stehlík

Risk Management, Experimental Design, Pension Systems

Wagner

Time-Series Analysis, Analysis of Longitudinal Data, Survival Analysis, Bayes-Statistics, Medical Statistics

Waldl
