Second Examnier (Zweitgutachter)

We welcome students who would like Klaus Wehrle to act as the second examiner of their Bachelor's or Master's thesis. In order to create an efficient and effective procedure for deciding whether we can assess your thesis, please carefully read and understand the following information.

The decision if Klaus Wehrle can take over the duty as second examiner mainly depends on our available resources and our ability to assess your topic. Please note that we require up to three weeks for grading your thesis after we have received the necessary documents from your first examiner (this typically happens a few days after both your thesis and your thesis colloquium have been graded). Please consider this for your time schedule, especially if you require that your grading has been finished by a certain deadline (because you need to enroll for a Master's program or want to receive your certificate at Tag der Informatik / Sommerfest).

In order to ensure that you get a timely response whether we will and can act as the second examiner for your thesis, we implemented the following procedure:
All requests for second examinations are solely handled via e-mail to thesis(at)comsys.rwth-aachen.de.
(Please do not write to Klaus Wehrle or the office for inquiries.)

Please approach us as early as possible and include the following information:

  • Your full name, e-mail address and matriculation number
  • Your study programme
  • The name of your first examiner (professor / private docent)
  • The name of the post-doc / PhD student advising you (if applicable)
  • The proposed title of your thesis
  • A one to two pages abstract about your thesis topic (this should allow us to verify that we are able to assess the proposed topic)
  • Your planned date for submitting your thesis

Normally you should receive a reply from us within one week, in exceptional cases we might need up to two weeks. If you wait longer than two weeks for a reply or receive an e-mail error, please contact René Glebke as the coordinator of Klaus Wehrle's second examiner duties directly.
