Matching students to thesis projects

  • Name teachers: Frans Wiering & Imke de Jong
  • Faculty:¬†Betawetenschappen
  • Tool:¬†KonJoin

In order to efficiently link third-year bachelor students to thesis projects, Frans and Imke made use of KonJoin. The so-called matching functionality in KonJoin allows you to create a separate environment to which students, (thesis) projects and/or thesis supervisors can be added. Within a set period of time, students can sign up for their preferred thesis projects or thesis supervisors. After this period, students can be automatically matched to a project or to a thesis supervisor based on their preferences.

Goals

Fairly and efficiently matching students to thesis projects.

Results

KonJoin is still developing further in order to facilitate this process even better, but we have been able to match students well to projects and thesis supervisors for several years now.
