Amalie, 23, is a master student in Biomedical Engineering. Currently, she is working as a research year student at DRCMR, however she did her bachelor thesis at DRCMR as well.
“In the spring of 2015 I did my bachelor thesis on Brain maturation in children and adolescents examined using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging as the last part of my bachelor degree in Biomedical Engineering at DTU (Medicin og Teknologi).
A bachelor thesis is the first opportunity to dip into real research. Thus, my bachelor partner and I looked at a multitude of different projects, and were a bit overwhelmed with all the different interesting possibilities. A reason as to why we ended up at DRCMR was the high degree of flexibility and the possibility to tailor the project to our interests and strengths – which makes the process a lot more enjoyable. Furthermore, the possibility of becoming a part of a vibrant research environment as DRCMR, was very appealing. We were allowed and encouraged to participate in DRCMR framework of research meetings, student meetings and research group meetings, whereby we were introduced to a lot of the research going on at the department.
I’m very satisfied with the achieved result and the work process at DRCMR. Even though you need to work independently and the tasks may seem daunting, there is always someone you can ask for help and who will guide you in the right direction – your supervisors, the affiliated PhD or even IT.”
