General topic suggestions for a thesis


Below you will find possible topics for theses. The topics are to be understood as examples and can also be used to develop your own questions. They are related to current research projects. It is also possible to work on related topics together with companies. If you have your own ideas that differ from the topics listed, you can discuss them together. For this purpose, please contact directly Prof. Rüdiger von der Weth. For Bachelor's theses, I expect knowledge in the area of systematic scientific literature research. Those working on Master's theses should have knowledge of qualitative and quantitative research methods or be willing to familiarise themselves with them. 


1.) Effects of digitalisation on human work: efficiency, motivation, necessary qualification, health consequences.

2.) Development of strategies for the introduction of new technologies in companies

Interests

The AWI professorship deals with the consequences of digitalisation for people and the question of how to design future work systems and company cooperation in such a way that meaningful, healthy and innovative work is possible and we can further develop our skills. This is done in close cooperation with practitioners (e.g. Infineon, DGVU, medium-sized companies) and other scientific institutions.

AWI and the Chair of Human Resource Management conduct joint research in the Human Factors and Resources working group.  There and in the HTW's research information system you can find more information about staff, research projects and third-party funding. Cooperative doctoral projects are supervised at the professorship.

Prof. Rüdiger von der Weth gives lectures and workshops on the role of people in future processes of digitalisation and innovation, as well as on the planning of complex strategic decisions.
