Bachelor projects

General information

In the course you, together with your supervisor, will choose a problem in astrophysics, which you independently will study and solve. The task can be of an observational, technical or theoretical nature. It should preferentially be linked to a current research project at the department.

In the course you will get the opportunity to apply your previously acquired knowledge on a specific problem and to interpret and rate the results. You will also get training in reporting the problem, methods of investigation and results, both in written and oral form.

For more general information see the FYSK04 canvas page.

Practical information (from VT 2024)

Bachelor projects are given as part of the FYSK04 course.  Please register your interest in an astrophysics bachelor project when Johan Rathsman and Oxana Smirnova contact you.  Thereafter the process is as follows:

  • The division bachelor project coordinator (Ross Church) will contact you with a list of possible projects during the first half of December (for projects running in HT, mid-August). The project booklet for VT 2024 can be found here.
  • You should choose any projects that you are interested in and meet with the supervisor for a short discussion.
  • Once you have met with potential supervisors you should ross [at] astro [dot] lu [dot] se (provide the coordinator) with a ranked list of projects. The deadline to send requests to the coordinator is 17.00, Thursday December 21.
  • In discussion with you and the supervisors the coordinator will match up supervisors with projects.

If you have any questions please contact the coordinator, Ross Church, ross [dot] church [at] fysik [dot] lu [dot] se (ross[dot]church[at]fysik[dot]lu[dot]se).
