honours-/excellence program Honors program CSE
The Honors program is aimed at excellent students from one of the Master programs.
The goal of the program is to give these students the opportunity to participate in and contribute to the research being done at the department. Concretely, the Honors program consists of:
- Two projects for 6 ects each, one in semester 1B of the Master program and one in semester 2A. These projects can be research-oriented or design-oriented and are done in different research groups in the department. The exact contents of the projects is determined by the supervisor of the research group where the project is done, in consultation with the student. The expected outcome of the project is a paper (published as a technical report of the department, and possibly also elsewhere).
- Beside the projects, the student participates in other activities of the research group (for example in research seminars) and is encouraged to participate in activities organized by one of the national Dutch research schools (ASCI, IPA, or SIKS). The latter activities are typically short courses or conferences.
Note that the Honors program is done on top of the regular Master program. Students who successfully complete the Honors program will receive a certificate upon graduation.
