Award Ceremony: Epilog

On 25 June 2019, the Faculty of Informatics honours excellent students for their outstanding achievements in the festive setting of Epilog. In addition to the award of the best diploma thesis, the Best Poster Award is presented. Apart from that, the graduates of the Bachelor with Honors excellence program are honoured.

Learning from the best

We invite you to get to know the latest diploma theses at Epilog. The jury, chaired by Margrit Gelautz and consisting of Stefan Biffl, Martin Kampel, Wolfgang Kastner and Florian Zuleger, will select the four best graduates. The four candidates will compete against each other by presenting their diploma theses. Those who convince the jury will receive the Distinguished Young Alumna/Alumnus Award endowed with € 1,500.
A comprehensive poster exhibition will allow visitors to see for themselves the achievements of all the graduates of the summer semester. The best poster will be awarded a prize worth € 500.
We cordially invite especially students from younger semesters to get inspiration for their own work. Maybe one of you will soon be nominated for a presentation at Epilog?

Bachelor with Honors Certificate

The final certificates for graduates of the Bachelor with Honors Excellence Programme are also awarded in the summer semester. Since 2017, the supplementary Bachelor's programme has been offered to students with outstanding academic achievements in order to open up opportunities for them to deepen their knowledge and inspire them at an early stage for scientific research.
