The first chapters should use generally understandable terms, while later chapters can introduce and make use of technical terms. Each chapter should contain a short introduction and a summary.

The number of pages depends on the type of thesis. While a bachelor's thesis is usually in the 40-50 page range, a master's thesis often has around 80-100 pages. We also provide a LaTeX template for theses.

The colloquium consists of a 20-25 minute presentation, followed by a question and answer session.
