Omschrijving The Bachelor Project is the final project of the bachelor’s degree programme in which the student carries out a research or design project in which the knowledge and skills obtained during the programme are applied and integrated.
In the first weeks there will be accompanying meetings covering the topics: 1. Finding relevant research articles (using MathSciNet, Web of Science, journals in the library and on the internet), 2. Studying a (applied) mathematical research article, 3. Writing a mathematical text, 4. The review process 5. Giving a presentation about a (applied) mathematical topic.
In these weeks the students will collect articles relevant for their own research/design project, write a text of about 4 pages with a general description of their project including their research question and the background of their project, and a preliminary bibliography. In a peer review process the students will review these texts of their peers. Finally, at the end of these weeks the student will give an oral presentation based on their research.
