Fakultätslehrpreis 2022

During the KIT anniversary celebration on May 17, the 2022 Fakultätslehrpreise were presented. Prof. Nora Szech and her team were awarded for their varied, research-oriented and particularly interactive teaching program. Due to this concept, Szech's team has managed to deal with the difficult situation around Corona very well, so that the teaching does not suffer at all under the current conditions.
