B.Sc. – it’s official!

It’s done! It’s finally done! And since Saturday it’s official!

On the 19th of May 2016 I have finished my study and reached the Bachelor of Science degree. My first academic degree. Starting in August 2016, it took me a little bit more than three and a half year to finish my study. At the end of March 2016 I sent my thesis to the university and I got invited for the colloquium on 19th May.

So, what’s a colloquium? My colloquium got two parts: presentation and a Q&A part. The presentation was all about my thesis. What is the topic? Why did I choose this topic? How did I proceed to write the thesis? What are the key results? I had 15 to 20 minutes for the presentation and then there was a Q&A part of further 15 minutes. The examiners asked only questions regarding the thesis. I had to explain a fact here, an imprecise statement on page x or one of my figures. There have been some questions, that was not able to answer, but that was no problem.

Finally, I completed my thesis with a 1.3, which leads to an overall grade of 2.0 for my whole study. And I have to say that I’m pretty fine with this result and I am very proud of myself, too.

So, what’s next?
If you thought that I will stop this blog now and stop learning, you’re definitely wrong! I have already some other topics on my mind, but this is a story for the next blog post.
