GRADUATION PROJECT

Introduction

The Aeronautical Engineering program is concluded by a graduation period of five
months (30 EC). This manual gives specific information about this period and has
been written for all parties involved : the student, the company supervisor, the
university supervisors and the examiner.
Whenever ‘student’, ‘he’, ‘himself’, ‘tutor’ or ‘supervisor’ is mentioned, it can also
be read as : ‘female student’, ‘she’, ’herself’, ‘female tutor’ or ‘female supervisor’.
In this manual it is described which competences the student should minimally
develop and what is expected from the student, the tutor and the company in this
educational unit.
First of all, chapter 2 gives an introduction about the graduation in the context of
the total curriculum, the competences and the didactic concept.
Chapter 3 describes the steps for acquiring and preparing for the graduation
project and also lists the conditions for a graduation project.
Chapter 4 explains the roles of the supervisors and examiner, and chapter 5 the
assessment.
Chapters 6 and 7 describe the various forms of assessment the student will be
subjected to and the different interactions with the graduation coordinator and
university supervisor.
Furthermore, all relevant forms have been included.
Finally, the appendices provide further information, such as the graduation
agreement, information on graduation abroad and guidelines for making the
reports.
For any questions or indistinctnesses regarding this graduation period you may
contact the graduation coordinator through e-mail. Besides, students are
supposed to regularly consult the Blackboard site (Course GEN AE4 Afstuderen /
Graduation) because of recent and additional information to be found here.

administration. etc. Graduating abroad Spending a graduation period abroad is certainly advisable. It produces many additional experiences apart from graduation itself. Consultation with the graduation coordinator may be helpful here. Do contact the graduation coordinator about this. 3. Therefore it is best to orient yourself well on companies in The Netherlands and / or abroad. however. More information on graduating abroad can be found in Appendix 1.AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING 3 GRADUATION PROJECT Preparations Graduating requires much organization :  The student has to acquire his own graduation position including a suitable assignment.1 Prerequisites A student is only allowed to start his graduation project after :  he has achieved all credits of year 2 and has completed the Engineering Internship  he has a maximum of 2 unfinished examinations to complete year 3 and the first semester of year 4 This should be validated by a PeopleSoft printout. Graduation coordinator It is necessary to keep the graduation coordinator informed about the actions and the state of affairs in time. draft the assignment(s) and take care of the internal organization with regard to supervision.2 Acquiring a graduation assignment Applying The companies expect the students themselves to apply for a graduation position. often costs (considerably) more time. he may send a motivated request to the examination committee to start with the graduation assignment. 3. Arranging this. 8 . he can tell you more about it and give good tips. traineeship agreement (appendix 3). This requires a good preparation (application letters and CV) and execution (application interview). In this chapter. more information follows about these various aspects for all parties involved. If the student has no access to the graduation project based on the prerequisites as described above.  The companies hold interviews with one or several students on the basis of open or specific applications. Therefore the best thing is to start very timely with this. to select from these a number of companies that suit your own interests and to approach these with a good letter plus curriculum vitae (see appendix 2) and university information about the graduation.

 There may not be any family relationships. Level  The assignment should be a technical assignment at bachelor level: see the objectives in chapter 2 and the competence card for aeronautical engineers  The assignment requires sound analytical skills and research skills Individual  The student should be able to carry out the assignment independently. Group assignments are possible. Start dates  Four dates per year are available for the start of the graduation project. mid-April. 9 . The company  Companies should have a minimum company size of five employees. to be spent in a period of approximately five months. so that sufficient supervision of a satisfactory level is guaranteed.

Relevance  The assignment should be relevant for the company and therefore the results must be useful for the company. These are listed below. it is advised not to graduate at the same company as where the third-year traineeship was done. Exact dates can be found on Blackboard.AERONAUTICAL ENGINEERING 3. he may delegate this to one of the tutors. Scope  The scope of the graduation assignment should be such that the assignment (including the reports) can normally be completed within the indicated period.  In general. though each student should be able to get his own final review.
