Youngest Faculty of Science student is in MSc Logic

Faculty of Science student Floor Sietsma has succesfully finished the MSc Logic. Last Friday, September 25 the Seventeen old could pick up her diploma. According to her teachers Sietsma knows exactly what she want and is very focussed.

'The coming six months I will be working on a project with the Centrum voor Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), in preparation for a PhD position that could start in April. Professor dr. Jan van Eijck and professor dr. Krzysztof Apt supervise me in this', says Floor.

Sietsma got a lot of media attention in 2004 as the youngest university student in the Netherlands. At twelve year she started two bachelor programmes: Informatics and Mathematics. After a year Sietsma choose Informatics, because this is what she found most interesting.

'I enjoyed myself very much at the UvA and during my studies I have therefor been very active in the student union VIA'.
