Students that execute a bachelor thesis at the Operations Research and Logistics (ORL) group have the chance to further develop their knowledge and skills within a theme of their interest that is studied in our group. At ORL, is possible to execute a project in which you apply and improve your quantitative research skills (e.g. by building an optimization model or simulation model), or qualitative skills (e.g. by conducting a case study, survey, or literature review). Based on the size of your thesis (e.g. 12 ECTS or 24 ECTS), we together decide about a project with best fit.
Are you interested in exploring a bachelor thesis with ORL, or are you triggered after following (one of) our courses? Do not hesitate to send an e-mail to our thesis coordinator Harmke (email@example.com) and fill out this intake form. You will be invited to visit one of our plenary intake meetings (which are organized organized bi-weekly).
Personal development of our ORL students is leading. Together with the thesis coordinator, you determine the type of thesis that you will conduct. On completion of your bachelor thesis, you will have the skills to:
- Set goals within a limited timeframe
- Argue why a particular method is used for a specific problem
- Apply different techniques that help build your skills set and solve problems
- Present findings in a coherent and attractive way
