We teach research-oriented courses on cryptography and privacy engineering, as well as digital technology. We offer the following courses and theses.

Planned Lectures, Labs, and Seminars (might be subject to changes)

  • WS20/21: PrivTech (Seminar), Digitaltechnik (Integrierte Veranstaltung, in German)
  • SS21: PrivDev (Project/Lab), CRYPROT (Integrated Course)

Below we give examples for open thesis topics for bachelor and master projects. Students who attended at least one of our courses are very welcome to contact us regarding more unannounced topics or to apply for innovative self-proposed topics that match our research profile.

To get an idea what our thesis topics can be about, check out currently running and finished theses.

  • Bachelor Thesis

    The goal of this thesis is to explore how Intel’s new vectorized AES instructions can be used efficiently, and how properly using them can lead to faster and more efficient secure multi-party computation. An essential part is to efficiently implement secure garbling utilizing these CPU instruction sets and pipelining.
