General information



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 2019, projects are up-to-date January 16th.

 If you start in September 2018, projects are up-to-date July 12th

If you have your own idea for a Bachelor project, you should contact the HFE track coordinator (Lida David:, no later than 2 months before the start of the semester in which you want to start your Bachelor's thesis.


Signing up for a project requires the following 4 steps:

STEP 1: register for the hfe specialization

Around mid-November (or mid-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 further action is required until further notice. 


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

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

Dates for making your top 5: 

If you start in February 2019: from January 16th to January 22nd 2019

If you start in September 2018: from August 17th to August 27th 2018

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


By 5 February 2018 or 3 September 2018 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.


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.
