New regulation for thesis supervision by employees of the department

If you are planning to write your thesis in the Department of Geoecology, please do not contact the staff directly.

Instead, send an e-mail to the Secretariat of the Department of Geoecology (Ms. Nancy Trinks, ) stating your name, first name, matriculation number and degree program in a few sentences outline the timetable and state the desired reviewers or supervisors. The presentation of the possible topics for the thesis may still be very vague and you can also specify several areas for the topic of the thesis.

Based on your outline of possible topics for the thesis, the most suitable reviewer (s) or supervisor (s) will be chosen.

Normally, you will receive feedback by e-mail from the Secretariat of the Geoecology section within 4 weeks.

"Geoecology is interdisciplinary natural sciences oriented in environmental problems. She is aimed at the understanding of the functionalities and impact of the environment, in particular to recognise problems in connection with the human use and at solving."
