Your question unfortunately is rather too vague and broad to be a good fit for this Q&A forum. How would we be able to tell you what you should be studying? We don't know you, we don't know what your interest are, or what skills you already have. Besides, choosing a topic for your master thesis is something you should be discussing with your mentor. What I suggest you do is that you read up a bit on what SW technology can do, try and think of a few possible research directions that interest you yourself, and then discuss it with your mentor.

You might get some ideas for further reading from looking through questions here:


But still, Jeen's advice is sound: you should speak with an advisor.

thank you so much. excuse me for the poor and "wrong" question. but I'm just scary and so worry, that i have to choose my thesis topic as fast as i can. i am a web developer (php, symfony mvc framework, asp.net mvc, asp.net webforms, HTML5, CSS3, jquery). i heard about semantic web few days ago. and i am still learning and searching about it. i think i'll find a lot of what i need in the "What are the hot topics of research in Semantic Web?" article you mentioned in the comments. thank you so much

just another thing.

Software Engineering Web Development (PHP, ASP.NET, Javascript, HTML5)

do you think is there something in 'semantic web' closer than other things to these tow topics.

as a web developer what benefit can semantic web give me. what about enhancing searching engings depending on semantic web.

is there any hot ideas combines (Software Engineering, Web Development and Semantic web) together

thank you.

@Wisamx, it's very difficult for us to answer these sorts of questions. If someone stopped me on the street and asked me where the police station was and I didn't know, I wouldn't try to answer them in case I sent them the wrong way and wasted a few minutes of their time. This situation is not dissimilar, but in this case, we could waste months of your time by recommending an unsuitable thesis topic for you. You need to talk to an advisor for your thesis.

... but if you wanted me to guess where the police station might be, you could look into creating visualisation tools for RDF data or SPARQL results.


Again though, this might be completely wrong for you.

@Signified, i'm still searching for a topic to work on, i'm searching for topics to choose from them, and now i have a new one to look for "visualisation tools for RDF data".

and it's so normal to spent sometime learning about it..

so, thank you. i appreciate your response.

I am thinking now about implementing some semantic web technologies and concepts in improving the sites of the universities here in my country.

but i still don't know how and where universities and also research centers can benefits from semantic web!

so, could you please give some practical or real example of how can universities benefits from semantic web.

thank you!
