Leerdoelen At the end of the course, the student is able to:
1) define, prioritize, restructure, clarify, refine, and categorize general problems and requirements of the supervisor;
2) apply his acquired computer-science knowledge, making use of scientifically and technically founded methods, tools, and processes;
3) cope efficiently and effectively with change during the project's lifetime, considering the goals and requirements of the supervisor, and also the consequences of the student's decisions.
4) critically read, study, and decide the applicability of subject-matter literature and other technical information in the context of his/her assignment, and also considering other constraints (e.g. deadlines and complexity);
5) critically assess the results of his/her own work and the work/results of other parties.
6) work in a project fashion, in a team and/or in close contact with the supervisor(s);
7) present the achieved results (technique, research, design, implementation, project steps, project results) adequately in writing and orally, both to a technical and non-technical audience;
8) demonstrate professional behavior: reliability, involvement, independence, precision, and ability to follow and respect (intermediate) deadlines.
Omschrijving A Bachelor’s thesis project has the following general characteristics:
- a project has a project owner (typically BI staff member, in special cases external person)
- a project has two supervisors (of which the so-called main supervisor is a BI staff member)
- a project covers 15 EC points(420 hours of study, one full block)
- a project is finalized by a BSc thesis and an oral presentation
- project work is divided into several steps (different for different concrete projects). These are discussed with the project's supervisor(s).
- the typical length of a BSc thesis is 30-40 pages (of course, the exact length depends on many aspects, including typesetting and use of imagery)
- the oral presentation (typically, PowerPoint/slides supported) takes typically 20 minutes. The audience include other BSc students, and the BI staff (supervisor(s) but also other staff members)
- the final evaluation and grade is done by the project supervisor(s).

Students will work on their own at solving the assigned topic.
