Welcome to AMMA

Mission Statement

AMMA (AMazing MAkers) is a research team dedicated to the field of empirical software engineering with a current focus on (but not limited to):

With these focus areas in mind, we are especially interested in researching and contributing to large-scale (real-world) applications of software engineering processes and, to that end, strongly rely on empirical software engineering methods.

Supervision Offer

We are offering supervision for all projects within our scope, including seminar, internship, bachelor thesis, and master thesis projects. You are encouraged to either choose a project from our “current research topics” or propose your own idea.
