With his always excellently prepared lecture material, he responds flexibly to the accompanying exercises and the knowledge of the students. The drawings made during the lectures match the exercises and can be transferred and understood by the students even during the lecture. The prize money will be handed to him with a very good grade in the pre-evaluation of the Student Council Representatives by means of verified evaluation results and a clear vote of the General Assembly. It is to be used to expand his teaching in terms of improved quality and in collaboration with the student who suggested him for the Award.
