    Your final thesis with us: FAQs

      How much time do I have to write my final thesis?

      Generally, you have three to six months to write your final thesis. The exact duration depends on your university’s exam and study regulations. However, it is possible to combine your final thesis with a voluntary internship to expand the time frame to six months for example and gain more on-the-job experience. This makes sense if you want to get to know the department, operations, and work culture before signing the contract for your final thesis.

      How much time will I have outside of my work for Voith to write my final thesis?

      The final thesis is a clear priority for both you and your supervisor. Voith will grant you enough time to write your thesis during working hours. You will of course support the team’s everyday operations to gain on-the-job experience. However, this doesn’t mean that you should neglect your thesis.
