LORE / Teaching / PP3BAC
The idea of the project proposals below is that students complete a complex software system during a two semester period. At the end of the second semester, the students have to present the results of their projects, typically by means of a short report and a little presentation.
A detailed elaboration of the expectations about projects are discussed can be found in Dutch.
There are three types of projects we are happy to supervise. The first collects everything that has to do with object-oriented reengineering, the main research topic for LORE. The second involves various tools to support teaching and research, while the third are projects in industry.
We have organized the information on PP3BAC projects supervised by LORE members in three sections:
LORE guides students throughout the year at two levels: (i) the individual level; and (ii) the group level.
At the individual level, students are assigned a project guide. The task of this project guide is to coach the student. At large, this coaching role consists of "stimulating and guiding the development of an effective attitude of the student with respet to the problems and situations related to the project, conform to a durable growth in personality, such that the ability to handle equivalent situations in the future, without coaching, improves". More specifically, the project guide is the student's first line of support.
At the group level, we invite students to organize regular project meetings. The goal of these meetings is to (i) prepare for the final project defense at the end of the year; (ii) practice and improve communication skills; and (iii) learn from others. How often these meetings are held is determined by the students themselves.
I'd, the purpose is to get to know each other, and to get aware of other students addressing similar challenges. As of the second meeting, some kind of presentation is preferred as the main means to structure your communication. The setting which is simulated in these presentations is the following: imagine that you are working at a company, and all of a sudden your boss pops in to ask about your current status. Aspects that we typically like to see addressed in these presentations are:
