The student is assessed in several ways during the course of the programme. Various assessment instruments are used to this end.
Most modules are assessed by means of a written examination. The Information Storage module is assessed by means of assignments and the Electromagnetic Field Theory module is assessed by means of an oral examination.
The Measurement Engineering, Computer Systems and Embedded Signal Processing modules are assessed in part by means of a practical exercise. This practical exercise must be completed with a satisfactory result before the student can sit the exam.
A practical tutor may require one or more reports to be written, a journal to be kept and/or a presentation to be held. The assessment of a practical is based on the student’s performance during the practical.
The assessment of Minor modules is described in the Teaching and Examination Regulations of the programme responsible for the Minor.
A number of projects are carried out to stimulate the integration of various modules or a single module and to enable performance to be monitored. These projects are completed with a presentation and/or report. In addition to the projects below there are also mid-first year and final first year projects and a Mechatronics project.
The B2 project is normally carried out in groups of 4 students. The B2 project is assessed on the basis of performance during the course of the project, an oral interim report, an oral final report and a written final report of the activities performed. A written interim report may also be requested.
The Bachelor’s assignment is assessed on the basis of the working methods applied during the course of the project, an oral final report and a written final report of the activities performed. The Chair shall appoint a supervisory committee that consists of at least two people. The supervisory committee will include at least one member of the faculty’s permanent academic staff. The supervisory committee appoints a supervisor responsible for day-to-day supervision.
The supervisory committee will also include at least one examiner. The permission of the Programme Director is required to carry out the Bachelor’s thesis outside of the University of Twente’s Electrical Engineering department.
