    Q&A with Jeffrey Bottse: a Successful Thesis Writing Workshop

    Presenting your final work for professors, family and friends. For some (technical) students this may seem a last hurdle in the graduation project, presenting lots of difficult data in complex tables and graphs. However, this presentation is one of the best opportunities you can get in your student career to convey YOUR message! Jeffrey (24) has learned in the ‘Presenting and Defending’ Workshop that the presentation should not focus on the data and technical or financial results of your graduation project, but on the societal meaning and impact of the outcomes. This blog tells the story of Jeffrey, presenting his thesis for over 40 attendees the day after the workshop.

    Blog Jochem Gieles: Prefer doing over thinking!

    The deadline for writing this blog has expired more than a week now and it is due to the kindness of my colleagues that this fact has not grown to a serious problem. If I ask myself why it has come this far I will answer in twofold: “First of all, it is one of all the small tasks that distract me from writing my Bachelor End Project. Secondly, I do not want my blog to be about some random topic and of intermediate quality. I want to excel when writing my blog.” I would define this behavior and thinking as me being me, a stereotypical thinker. In my concern to write a good blog I postpone the actual writing part with the paradoxical consequence that no blog is written at all. The final result: no blog, but more importantly no development on my writing skills. In this short blog I will discuss the impact of mindset, attitude and behavior on outcome and development.
