Prof. Strasser on the subject of course assessment

The student course assessment at TU Wien is the most important pillar of quality assurance for teaching.

Owing to the fact that all the compulsory teaching within the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology is subject to assessment each semester and every year, over time we develop a clear picture of the courses offered. The teaching staff and the Dean of Studies have the opportunity to purposefully discuss, propose and implement improvements. Both the standard questions and the opportunity to comment freely help to either expand or reduce a variety of teaching methods.

Students’ active participation in the assessment ensures coordination between different courses. In order to be able to carry out quality control in the long term, it is vital that the majority of students take part in the assessment, because only then can suggestions for improvement be discussed and implemented in the Studies Commission for Electrical Engineering. We therefore invite all students to actively participate in the assessments.
