Bachelor honours programme »
For its more ambitious students, the University of Twente offers an interesting honours programme which challenges the students to show their best.
The programme starts every year in February and is for the top 10% of each study only. In nearly one and a half year you follow a programme of 30 EC next to your regular bachelor programme. As the programme is open for all bachelors, you will work in an interdisciplinary group of excellent and motivated students. During the course, you will be intensively guided and tutored by a specially chosen group of scientists with different backgrounds and disciplines.

For the course Operating Systems, a basic course for programming in C has been given by Inter-Actief. The material and video recording are available here.
The primary goal of the C course is to provide students the basic tools to tackle the assignments of Operating Systems, but it serves as a good starting point to learn C for anyone. The videotaped course includes a practical part. To maximize your learning, you can make the assignments that are presented throughout the lecture. For this, you need to be able to run GCC (https://gcc.gnu.org/). The easiest way is to put a Linux distribution on a USB stick, for example Ubuntu using unetbootin: https://unetbootin.github.io/. Make sure you can boot to Ubuntu from your USB stick.
- Video from the UT vimeo
- Material, a zip file containing exercises, slides, exercise files and example solutions
We would like thank the lecturer Noah Goldsmid, the staff of Module 5 Computer Systems and the students that have worked on this course in previous years.

Gezocht student(en) voor een notuleerfunctie voor de OLC van Informatica. BOZ (Bureau Onderwijszaken) blijft wel het aanspreekpunt voor de OLC en wij verzorgen en verzamelen verder alles. Het gaat dus puur om het maken / uitwerken van de notulen.
We zoeken studenten die geïnteresseerd zijn, bij voorkeur studenten die ervaring hebben met het maken van (Engelstalige) notulen en de studie Technische Informatica volgen (i.v.m. kennis). Je mag geen lid zijn van de OLC-IT. Het gaat om ongeveer 11 vergaderingen per jaar en er staat een vergoeding tegenover. De vergaderingen zijn één keer per maand en altijd op dinsdagochtend. Je krijgt een UT flex aanstelling en kunt je gewerkte uren declareren.
Mocht je nog verdere vragen hebben kun je contact opnemen met Miranda Huiskes: email@example.com.
