Master Project

Master Project at the LME

In the Computer Science M. Sc. program, a “project” course is defined. It is credited with 10 ECTS. You should work on it for about 300 hours in the timeframe of 6 months.

At the Pattern Recognition Lab we offer project topics that are connected to our current research in the fields of medical image processing, speech processing and understanding, computer vision and digital humanities. Other than a course with fixed topic, project topics are defined individually.


All projects are defined on an individual basis. In order to find an interesting topic, we recommend to have a look at our group and member websites. If you spot a topic that you find interesting, please go ahead and contact the person directly to find a topic for you. We also offer a mailing list on which we announce invited talks and topics for projects and master thesis. You can register to this list here.
