Established in 2005, the Epilog forms the centerpiece of our activities to highlight student talent. Held every semester, it provides the festive setting to present promising, outstanding students and their curricular achievements to the faculty and the public. It is the occasion on which a select group of candidates presents their master thesis in a 10-minute talk in front of an audience to convince the jury of their outstanding scholarship. Besides the Distinguished Young Alumn award, faculty members cast their vote for the Best Poster Award.
Since 2014, it also serves as the platform to award our best female students with the Siemens Award for Excellence (winter term only). And in 2019 we introduced the certification of Bachelor with Honors graduates to the event. Time and again, leaders from industry or internationally renowned researchers—such as Kurt Hofstädter (Siemens) or Daniela Nicklas (University of Bamberg)—give inspiring keynotes on current topics.
The event is open to the public, but first and foremost, it is a token of our dedication to and appreciation of our amazing students.
