Theses at the Centre for Logistics:

The goal of the Centre for Logistics is to ensure that students do their theses (degree, Bacheloran Master) in close collaboration with companies. In doing so, students usually work to find solutions to concrete, practice-related tasks using methods that they either choose or develop themselves after studying the relevant literature.

The four-step diagram of the philosopher of science, Karl Popper

  • The problem (-> setting the task)
  • Attempts to find a solution (-> methodology & results)
  • Elimination (-> criticism of methods & results)
  • New problems (-> need for further research)

serves as the guiding principle for the research work (see also: HNU working papers vol 19).
