Bachelor Project
The Bachelor study is concluded by carrying out an original project on a subject in ICT, Software Engineering, or Computer Science, and writing a comprehensible report about the work performed according to the usual norms for scientific technical reports.
Topics will be selected by the students jointly with their advisors. The project includes an outlining of the definition of the assignment in question, measurements with relevant instrumentation where applicable, collection of relevant material, analysis of problem, and possibly design and investigation of systems or programs. A comprehensive report is to be written, including, where relevant, text, figures, tables, abstract, and list of contents, index, and list of symbols. The report shall include a critical and comprehensive discussion and conclusion of the results, and comparison with previously obtained results, e.g. described in the professional and scientific literature. A short non-specialist, popular summary one half A4 page in size is to be written in Faroese and in English. The report will be written in a language agreed upon by the supervisor and the student, normally expected to be Faroese, another Nordic language or English.
