RWTH Says Goodbye to Computer Science Graduates


84 Bachelor's, 54 Master's, and nine doctoral students were honored during the celebration. Some students had an additional reason to celebrate, as Stefan Hegselmann and Tobias Pohlen were awarded the Schöneborn Prize, Erik Mühmer received the Ericsson Prize, and Sebastian Krott was the recipient of the itestra innovation Award.

The "ef.London Award“ was awarded for the first time, honoring one's extraordinary subject-specific activites aside from the regular curriculum. The prize was awarded to the "WatsOn“working group under Markus Joppich. Using the interactive "WatsOn“software, a user can not only take photos and timelapses of a chip but also identify a possible viral attack on a chip.

Outstanding academic performance requires good teaching as well. The student representative council honored Dr. Walter Unger and Thomas Ströder for their achievements in teaching.
