I have three options for my Bachelor Thesis, and I just keep banging my head against the wall trying to decide:

  1. Single Page Application performance optimization – I am familiar with the topic and I would definitely gain a lot of usable knowledge and this would definitely make me more of an expert in the job market.

    HOWEVER this has already been researched by students in previous years – that is what bugs me – and alot of content could overlap.

  2. Semantic web visualisation – the advisor for this thesis is really passionate about it(said I could expect alot of help from him) and the visualisation would be implemented as a web app(I do web development on daily basis).

    The problem is that I am not exactly excited about the semantic web and I don’t really see the future of it. So that would mean forcing myself to be interested in it since it would be a big part of the thesis.

  3. Object detection in point cloud – Really interesting topic related to autonomous cars, I would be proud to have written my thesis on this topic.

    The problem is that I don’t have the C/C++ experience to do this, and I’m worried I won’t make it.

I have 3 months to finish the thesis(no job, no other courses to take).

I know that probably the only person who can decide is me, but I’ve seen some good advice here and I just gave it a try.

I would like to ask how can I cite this text. is it ok? like this? thank you

“Compounding is a process of coining new words by combining two or more root morphemes (smallest and invisible meaningful units from which words are derived). Compounds are inseparable, it means that nine of the constituents (roots) can be dissociated from the whole. In addition to this, their meaning does not result from the meaning of their individual constituents. Compounds are characterized by their solid morphological and syntactic functioning, which also means that their word category need not correspond to the category of their individual components”.(Lančarič, 2010, p.68)

I’ve tried reading several guides on how to search in databases to get the relevant information that I’m seeking, either is my topic hard to find articles on or I guess it doesn’t exist many.
Anyway I thought I’d give it a shot here to see if you guys could help me get relevant search-results for what I’m searching for.

Basically I have the idea of doing a bachelor degree work on the topic “How is data backups being handled at municipalities?” where I want to get in contact with IT-responsible people working at municipality offices around the region where I live to answer the research question.

The work requires me to find scientific work/ articles that relates to this subject to explore what has been done before me in the area which I wish to study.

How would I go on about finding scientific work/ articles about the subject that I wish to study.

Basically how do I search databases in the most efficient way to find earlier articles relating to my subject?

Any help and advice is appreciated.

as the title suggests, I am looking for any advice, thoughts, or opinions on what is an ideal age to be going to university. It would be for a degree first, then after however, a masters, then (hopefully), a phd.

I am looking to study mathematics, though, I am 16 soon to be 17, currently homeschooled, but I self teach. I was hoping that I could use 4 years to deeply self study mathematics before going to university, In order to learn everything that I would need for first entering a mathematics degree.

4 years would leave me at around 20 or 21 years old. To me, that feels a bit old? And so I ask what would be the most ideal age for entering. I would guess most answers to be 18 or 19, however I don’t think I could cover all content needed for entering a mathematics degree by that age.

As well, would I have a lower chance of admittance being slightly older than the average student entering at, say 18 or 19 years old? I would be looking to enter into university(particularly queens), on mathematical knowledge alone.

If it is of any help, I am in the UK.

Sorry if this is not a well structured question, I am new to Academia stack exchange.


Right now, I am taking a BSc in computer science from a more reputable online university. Courses from there are transferable to most major Canadian universities. I would have preferred to take it from a brick-and-mortar place, but I wanted to just get as much done as fast as I can. In addition, I already have a degree.

Now, many of the programming courses (e.g., Beginner’s Java, C++) are quite intensive even coming from a programming background. Some courses like Data Structures go through the concepts as well as have you code them (also fairly involved). However, some courses like Operating Systems and Computer Networks do not have a programming component. They are quite intensive, but I’m worried that not having a programming component will render my learning useless by future employers. (Though, on the other hand, they do have courses like socket programming that does cover that aspect)

So, I am wondering: Do brick-and-mortar universities typically have every computer-science course require you to program?

If someone’s Master degree is revoked for plagarism after he got his PhD degree, will the university revoke his PhD degree consequently? Cause the requirement for his admission of PhD program in UK and Europe and also the granting of PhD degree was that he was holding his master degree before he got his phd degree? I know that in US, the admission requirement for phd study is his bachelor, in this case, if his bachelor is revoked after he has got his phd degree, will the university consequently revoke his phd degree as well please?

I want to study for computer science for bachelor’s degree (Informatica . L-31) in Italy. I’m searching for a university that does not require an admission test of physics and math (limited seats) but I have not found one yet .

Do you know any university in Rome, Milan, Florence that accepts students without an admission test ?

Do you know any consulting site that can help me finding the suitable university?
