Information Sciences

The faculty component of the Honours Programme at the Department of Computer Science consists of either 12EC or 18 EC that students can earn by taking extra internal courses, and/or conducting a research project. The total volume of any Honours Programme is 30EC, with the interdepartmental part having either 12EC or 18EC, depending on the student’s choice for the faculty component.

The following options are available for the Faculty component:

  • Option 1: students define and lead a research project that is worth 18 EC; 
  • Option 2: students define and lead a research project that is worth 12 and take the course Caput Elective for 6 EC; 
  • Option 3: students define and lead a research project that is worth 12 EC; 
  • Option 4: students define and lead a research project that is worth 6 EC and take the course Caput Elective for 6 EC; 
  • Option 5: besides Caput Elective, students take, in consultation with the honours coordinator of the Department of Computer Science, one extra 6EC - course on level 300 which is not in students’ regular study programme and which is a meaningful contribution to their honours programme.

The educational components of the honours programme offered by the Department of Computer Science are:

  • X_HP003: Honours Research Project 1 (6EC); 
  • X_HP004: Honours Research Project 2 (12EC); 
  • X_HP005: Caput Elective (6EC). 

(Every year the Department of Computer Science offers an extra honours course in period 5, called Caput Elective. Contents reflect timely topics and depend on the availability of staff. Honours students will be informed about this course in January.)

For questions about the specific contents of the Information Sciences honours programme, please contact the coordinator: Alexander Iosup

After consulting your academic advisor, you can develop and plan these faculty components. It is necessary to have the complete selection of honours subjects approved by your faculty honours coordinator.
