GENERAL PROCEDURE

If you want to do your bachelor thesis project in Human Factors and Engineering psychology (HFE), you can see available projects here. These projects are divided into three general topics: Cognitive Psychology, Human Factors and Technical Cognition.

Every semester, new project proposals are published on the HFE website: 

If you start in February, projects are up-to-date only after the second week of January.

 If you start in September, projects are up-to-date only after the end of July.

If you have your own idea for a Bachelor project, you should contact the HFE track coordinator (Marlise Westerhof: m.w.westerhof@utwente.nl), no later than 2 months before the start of the semester in which you want to start your Bachelor's thesis.

STEPS:

Signing up for a project usually requires the following 4 steps:

STEP 1: REGISTER FOR THE HFE SPECIALIZATION

Around the end of November (or April, if you start your thesis in September), you will receive an email from the Bachelor thesis coordinator, inviting you to register for one out of the five psychology specializations for a bachelor thesis. If you wish to complete your thesis in the specialization of HFE, do not forget to register (all information on how to register will be provided to you in the email).

After registration, no other actions are required until further notice. 

Note that the following steps 2-4 are subject to change. The specific steps required and respective deadlines for each new cohort of students are sent to you via email by the HFE track coordinator.

STEP 2: MAKE YOUR SELECTION

A few weeks after registering to a specialization, you will receive a follow-up email from the HFE track coordinator, with more details on choosing a specific project within your chosen specialization.

For HFE, you will be asked to make a top 5 choice of the projects you like most. The projects you choose should include at least three different supervisors. Do not contact the thesis supervisor at this stage.

The track coordinator will send you further details via email closer to the date.

STEP 3: ASSIGNMENT ALLOCATION

By The first Monday of February (or of September) you will receive an e-mail stating the assignment you were allocated to. We always take your preferences in consideration, but we cannot guarantee that you will be assigned to your first choice.

STEP 4: CONTACT SUPERVISOR

After you are informed by the track coordinator about the project allocations, you have to contact the supervisor of your project, and register to mobility online on time! Please consult the activity overview, for all the following necessary steps you need to take.
