Prof. Dr. Alexander Pretschner, Scientific Director, and Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar, Senior Research Fellow at fortiss, were awarded this year’s prize for the best teaching and the best doctoral student supervision. The honors were bestowed by the Technical University Munich (TUM) School of Computer Science and the Center of Doctoral Studies in Informatics and its Applications (CeDoSIA).
This past Friday, the School of Computer Science handed out the 2020 prize for best teaching, an award that recognizes student tutors and staff who have demonstrated excellence in teaching. Prof. Dr. Helmut Krcmar, Chair for Business Informatics, was previously honored as best seminar instructor in the 2018/2019 school year for his master’s seminar Digital Transformation. He was also a co-recipient of the CeDoSIA Supervisory Award along with Prof. Dr. Alexander Pretschner, Chair for Software and Systems Engineering. This award was bestowed by the Center of Doctoral Studies in Informatics and its Applications (CeDoSIA) in recognition of the best doctoral student supervision. Both professors can also supervise and provide individual support to fortiss scientists who are pursuing a doctorate.
CeDoSIA is the School of Computer Science interdisciplinary doctoral student program at TUM, which offers a training program for achieving research excellence within an international research community. As in past years, doctoral students, members of the TUM graduate school, can nominate their supervisor as a candidate. The award recipients were determined through a multistep selection process. The €5,000 prize money is intended to support doctoral students.
