      quick translation from the actual requirements:
      "work self-dependent on a practice-related problem using practice-oriented and scientific knowledge and methods"
      in short: keep it useful

      Thanks for your reply - there are some things in my company I could solve (or try to sovle ;) )

Some companies usually advertise some topics they want researched, but as I'm already tied to my company (a rather small one) and they don't have a specific topic to research I have to found one for myself. Of course it should bring some benefit to the company.

As I'm a student I don't have that much experience, so every suggestion of topic either doesn't suit me (too big or too much unknown stuff) or I just can't imagine what to do and how to do it.
