The 'Graduation Lab' is a weekly two-hour session in which students in their graduation phase discuss recent developments, challenges, and successes in their graduation projects. Every research project comes with a multitude of decisions to make and steps that could be taken. In the Graduation Lab, these steps will be discussed as a group with the goal of strengthening both the quality of the individual projects, as well as the analytical skills of their authors.
Meeting regularly with other graduates has proven to be a strong contributor to graduation success and increases the enjoyment of the process. While the lab is specifically aimed at students in their graduation phase, students who still have ample time before starting their projects are welcome to participate. Although the lab is not compulsory to attend, it is strongly recommended for students in their graduation thesis project.
