Inside the Venture Master Thesis Project opportunities @ MicroTEC Südwest

MCEI and MicroTEC Südwest are now offering master students the opportunity to write their master thesis in a young research-based Startup as part of MCEI's Inside the Venture Project. Non-German speaking master students are also encouraged to apply for the program.

Background

Within a European research project, a highly innovative and interesting procedure has been developed: The method enables a radical innovation within the clearly defined market segment of analytics and pharmaceutical development. 

In order to exploit this potential, the research team applied for an EXIST scholarship from the Federal Ministry of Economy and Technology. Since the method and the whole concept convinced the jury, the research team was granted 500.000 € by the EXIST program - money which will be used for further technological development, business model enhancement and eventually launching the product. 

Within the business model development, up to three master theses can be supervised. Please apply, if interested. The kick-off will be in early November.

Requirements

Every master thesis is supposed to look at one key aspect of the fields of business model development, market potential analysis and market entry strategy. 

Thorough knowledge in the following areas is required:

  • Methods of empirical economic research
  • Instruments and methods of innovation and technology management
  • Skills in marketing planning and sales management

Participants are not expected to have deep knowledge in all three areas, should, however, have gained sound knowledge in one of the three fields. As usual in our venture support program, master theses also require a 20-30 pages theoretical part next to the practical work to reveal your academic skills. You learn for a lifetime in accompanying a Spinoff but it requires a lot of dedication and diligence in return.

Opportunities

Working for a Startup offers the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in founding a technology-oriented company and realize one's own ideas. The founding team consists of young researchers and outstanding mentors. The launch of the venture is embedded into a highly scientific environment and the economic structures of the MicroTec Südwest cluster. The students who are writing their master thesis will closely work and cooperate with the founder team and will be able to make use of MicroTec's and IMTEK's network and coaches.

A financial compensation can be granted through a contract as a student research assistant.
