The bachelor project gives the student the opportunity to work independently to develop a solution to a significant (i.e., large) problem. The student learns and demonstrates both independence and a systematic approach to problem solving.
The bachelor project gives 12 ECTS, which correspond to the work of 2 typical bachelor-level courses. The students are expected to work throughout the semester under the supervision of their project advisor on the substance of the work, and meet regularly as a group with the Bachelor Project Coordinator to receive instructions about the purpose and mechanics of implementing a long-term project. At the end of the semester, the students produce:
- A project report
- A poster and poster presentation
- A product (if applicable) such as an algorithm, a software library, or application.
The learning method is primarily by direct experience. The student works with the advisor's and the co-advisors’ supervision.
The course helps students find an appropriate topic, carry on the research according to the project schedule, and finalize the report and the poster presentation, by providing guidelines and assistance.
The grading is an evaluation of the bachelor project committee based on the report and the poster presentation
