Another possibility is to carry out the final thesis with external partners, e.g. in other departments or in cooperation with authorities, engineering offices, etc. Here, special regulations according to the General Examination Regulations (APB) of TU Darmstadt must be taken into account. It is very important that in all cases a professor of TU Darmstadt is responsible for the supervision and evaluation of the thesis, but there is no obligation for the professors to supervise an external thesis. An external thesis requires additional approval from the chairman of the examination board before it can be started.
