You can use the first half of the third year according to your own wishes. If you fancy an experience abroad, you can opt for doing a minor in another country. The first half of this year, we will give you a chance to follow your own interests, in other words. The last six months will be dedicated to finishing your thesis.
The first six months
The first semester of the third year consists of what we call profiling space. During these modules you can choose subjects you are interested in at the University of Twente, elsewhere in the country or abroad.
The last six months
More than half of the second semester is dedicated to your thesis. The rest of the time is left open for electives and a subject called Complex function theory. Your graduation project will be a sizeable modelling assignment, often taken from real-life. In preparation for this assignment, you will first study and discuss several mathematics articles. This way you will gain experience in reading and understanding scientific research. After that you formulate your own research question on the basis of your assignment, which is often stated in general terms. The rest of your final project involves researching and working on your research question. Then you write a report on your findings. And to finish off your project – and your Bachelor's studies – you will present your work at a special student conference.
After all that, you will have a Bachelor's degree in your pocket. Wondering what you can do after your studies? Take a look.
