BSc-EE thesis

The Bachelor’s thesis (course codes 202001161 and 202001162 ) is the culmination of the Bachelor’s programme. A Bachelor’s thesis is carried out in the form of a 15 EC (420 hours) research project within a department. It is an opportunity to put the knowledge learned during the programme into practice. The Bachelor’s thesis is used to assess the student’s initiative and their ability to plan, report and present a project. The difficulty level of the thesis is described by the attainment targets of the programme and the modules followed up until that moment. Students work independently on a Bachelor’s thesis or Individual Assignment (IOO) under the guidance of a supervisor.
