In this module you will apply the knowledge you acquired in previous modules as you engage in a major design project. Working on this assignment together with a large group of fellow students, you will break the problem down into sub-functions and sub-problems. Naturally, you will have to discuss the preconditions with each other, so that all of the different partial solutions can be merged into a single, total design at the end. In this module we will also consider the non-technical conditions related to your design, such as user-friendliness and social or ethical aspects.
You carry out your final Bachelor's assignment under the supervision of one of the chairs within the departments of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science: microsystems, semiconductor physics, robotics, telecom, Artificial Intelligence, integrated circuit design/architecture, nano-electronics or biomedical applications. You can gear your choice of topic towards preparing for a Master’s specialization or programme. You work together with researchers from the chosen field as you research and develop technical applications – for example, a new connection, a new sensor/sensor system, or a control system for a surgical robot.
You are to conclude your third year by writing a thesis, which you will have to defend before a research committee. If you pass this test, the Bachelor of Science degree will be yours.
