Ulrich Schmid - Full professor, head of the Embedded Computing Systems Group and program coordinator of the Bachelor with Honors program at the Faculty of Informatics, Tu Wien

In his talk, Ulrich will provide an overview of the cornerstones of the Bachelor with Honors program of the Faculty of Informatics at TU Wien, which "... aims to nurture outstanding students in line with their talents, and to engage them in scientific research at an early point in their studies." He will briefly report on its current status and on some lessons learned during its setup phase. Moreover, Ulrich will reveal some ideas for a follow-up Master with Honors program, which is in the early phase of its development.
