Graduating in Mathematics and Applications of Signals and Systems

General description of the program in Applied Mathematics and the track Mathematics and Applications of Signals and Systems can be found on the MASS education site.

Final project

In the second year of the program there is a final project scheduled of 40EC. This amounts to roughly six months work. Most final projects are performed at the university. Another option is a combined internship and final project at a company. A final project at a different company then the internship is not encouraged. The final project should have a solid mathematical foundation showing that the student has mastered mathematics at the required level. Doing a final project in a different company often implies that a lot of time goes into familiarizing yourself with the company and the project that is assigned to the student. This might not leave sufficient time to reach a sufficient mathematical depth.

A student should first think about his or her wishes. Even though final projects are often performed at the university it does not mean a final project has to be theoretical. The student should decide whether preference is given to a theoretical or applied project. This is discussed with Anton Stoorvogel who coordinates the final projects for MASS. Most of the time, we will present several projects to the student (with different supervisors) and the student can choose his favorite topic.

Below is a list of recent final projects from students who are supervised by a staff member from HS:
