AI/ML (see differences here) is a rapidly growing field in computer science and health informatics is among the greatest application challenges. The Holzinger group is dedicated to educate the next generation of data scientists able to tackle future challenges. Ideally, you start with an inspiring Bachelor work, develop it into a cool Master thesis and culminate in an awesome PhD thesis – paving the way to both academics and business.

This page provides guidance mainly for PhD and MSc students interested to do their academic work (Master thesis, doctoral thesis) with the Holzinger Group in the field of human-centered AI with application in health informatics. However, it can also be useful for students interested in doing their BSc thesis (706.800, 706.801, 706.802, 706.804), AK Mini-project (706.046), Master project Web and Data Science (706.502), or project Informationssysteme (706.505) and your Bachelor thesis.
