Course Content

The Bachelor Project is carried out individually. It is meant as a
conclusion of computer science bachelor studies. The actual topic
differs per student and per research group and is determined in concert
with the supervisor. A student can select from an assortment of topics
offered, or suggest his/her own topic. Part of the project consists of
the study and review of literature.

Teaching Methods

After an orientation meeting, the student selects a supervisor and a
topic. The work, carried out on an individual basis, results in a
report (thesis) and an oral presentation.

Method of Assessment

Individual evaluation on the basis of performance (executed work (50%)),
report (thesis (40%)), and oral
presentation (10%).
