Prof. Brügge receives Teaching Award from the Bavarian State

The award recognizes his work as one of the best lecturers at Bavarian universities. On 22 November 2019, Science Minister Bernd Sibler awarded the "Prize for Good Teaching" to 15 Bavarian university teachers in the Audimax of the University of Passau. One of them was Prof. Bernd Brügge.

With this award, the Bavarian State Ministry of Science and the Arts annually honors the work of the best university teachers. In addition, the award signals that teaching is on an equal footing with research tasks. The award is endowed with EUR 5000.

Science Minister Bernd Sibler pointed out the importance of teaching. The outstanding reputation of our universities is largely due to the committed and outstanding work of our university teachers. They give young people access to new worlds, complex topics and far-reaching contexts. With their work, they are companions and role models for the future designers of tomorrow!

Teaching Award for Dr. Stephan Krusche

For the second time in a row, Dr. Stephan Krusche received the TeachInfAward for his course Project-Organization and Management. The course was offered in the summer semester 2018 to more than 500 students and included interactive elements such as quizzes, programming and modeling exercises where students received immediate feedback after their submissions. The positive lecture evaluation by the students and the award demonstrate that interactive learning is possible even in large lectures. The award was granted on June 29, 2019 by the student council (Fachschaft MPI) for his outstanding teaching performance.

Patterns in Software Engineering - Tutors wanted

We will teach the course patterns in software engineering in the winter semester 2019/20. The courses has a special emphasis on blended and experiential learning, mixing theory with exercises. We expect more than 300 students in the lecture and heavily rely on automated testing for the exercise conduction. Therefore, we are looking for motivated tutors who help us in the preparation and conduction of exercises. If you are interested, please fill out the application and we will get back to you shortly.

Top teaching trophy for Jan Knobloch

Jan Knobloch has won the top teaching trophy for offering the best education in the course Engineering Informatics 2. He was awarded by the student council of the Munich School of Engineering of the Technical University of Munich. With this outstanding education, innovative approaches and tools, he contributes to the learning success of the students in Informatics. Jan received the price from Emily Spicker, the head of the evaluation department in July 2019.

2019 TCSE Distinguished Education Award for Prof. Bernd Brügge

Outstanding contribution to the teaching of software engineers over three decades

The IEEE Computer Society Technical Council on Software Engineering (TCSE) has awarded the 2019 TCSE Distinguished Education Award to Prof. Bernd Brügge. His outstanding contribution to the education of thousands of software engineers over three decades, including the development of a textbook used by many institutions around the world led to that decision.

The award has been presented at the International Conference on Software Engineering 2019 (ICSE) in Montréal, Canada, by TCSE Chair Rick Kazman.

iPraktikum Team Receives SmartHome Deutschland Award 2019

For the third time in a row, an iPraktikum team got first place in the category "best student achievement" ("Beste studentische Leistung") at the SmartHome Deutschland Award 2019: with the industry partner iHaus, they developed the CityJuice system during the winter term 2018/19.

A common problem in neighborhoods with an increasing number of electric cars is the price for a charging station and a lack of possibilities to charge. Additionally, the distribution of energy may become a problem when every car owner operates a charging station. The team of ten students developed the iHaus CityJuice system that aims to solve these problems by providing charging station owners with a simple and intuitive way to share free capacities and car owners with a way to find available charging slots. An intelligent component decides, when and for how long a car can be loaded to guarantee a hassle-free transition to the next loading process. In the future, the system may automatically instruct the electric cars to drive to the next available charger and control the charger. CityJuice promotes this vision by providing an autonomous component that can communicate with cars and send instructions for the charging process.

As part of an event in the Rotes Rathaus in Berlin on May 29, 2019, the students presented the project and received the award for the first place. The SmartHome Deutschland initiative represents a trade-spanning, interdisciplinary communication platform to enable information exchange between regional smart home organizations and representatives of research, development, industry, commerce, and craft.

CYSTINET Africa

 

                                             Delivery of Video recording equipment to NIMR in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Africa

From April 15th to 18th, 2019 Ruth Demmel from the Chair for Applied Software Engineering and Andreas Jung from the Multimediagroup RBG at the Department of Computer Science TUM, travelled to the National Institute for Medical Research (NIMR) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania with the brand-new equipment to build up a full recording studio. The aim was to teach how to set up a mobile recording environment, record video lectures and slides for a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) with topics from Health Sciences in the context of the CYSTINET (https://www.cysti.net) project.

Ferienakademie 2019 - Autonomous Drones for Sustainability

We will offer a Ferienakademie course about the topic of Autonomous Drones for Sustainability during the Ferienakademie 2019. The Ferienakademie will take place from September 22, 2019, until October 4, 2019, in the Sarntal Valley, South Tyrol, Italy.

In this course, we are going to build a prototype for an autonomous drone-based water quality management system. We will use the Sarntal water reservoir next to our hotel to collect water samples. The samples should be collected every day and flown back to the laboratory based at our hotel. The developed system will be deployed to control the water quality of Lake Nokoué, in Benin, West Africa, which regularly suffers from water pollution. We will address the following topics: Green Hydrogen, Solar Energy, Battery Types, Autonomous drone flight, Search algorithms for drone fleets, Software patterns for drones, Drone fleet coordination, Scooping Mechanism for water sampling, and Geographic Information System data.

Tutors in Summer 2019: EIST, POM & SEECx

We will teach three large courses in summer 2019: Introduction to Software Engineering (EIST) has a focus on software development with exercises on analysis, design, modeling, programming, and testing. Project Organization and Management (POM) introduces students to agile methods, meeting management, configuration management, release management, continuous integration and continuous delivery. Software Engineering Essentials (SEECx) teaches the essentials of applied software engineering including UML, patterns, and project management techniques for managing the development of complex software systems.

All three courses put special emphasis on blended and experiential learning: mixing theory with exercises. We expect more than 1900 students in EIST and more than 500 students in POM. Therefore, we are looking for motivated tutors who help us in the preparation and conduction of exercises. Tutors can participate with a HiWi contract, or as part of a Seminar /  Praktikum.

If you are interested, please fill out the Application Form with your motivation, CV and transcript of records until February 28 (2nd round).
