Omschrijving  The aim of this course is to introduce students to a number of aspects of mathematical scientific (academic) research. Conducting academic research is a process that you have to learn step by step. Just as with learning how to drive a car, it is not always easy to coordinate the different steps at first. Firstyear Project, and the actions to be carried out for the projects in this course, are meant as a first step and an introduction. During the other years of your Bachelor degree, you will be prepared further for doing mathematical research, e.g. in the Master phase. The course is coordinated by Oliver Lorscheid. Various Mathematics staff members are involved in the supervision of the projects. Furthermore, some of the lectures are taught by invited lecturers.
