The DC Team

Explanation:

The department Design Computation | CAAD offers numerous courses in parallel in the different semesters. With

  • two Bachelor lectures with exercises (DC.littlebim, DC.BIGBIM (CAAD.eins/BIM.basic),
  • M1, M2, M3 master projects, B4 projects
  • Additional offers (Pixelstudio, DC.VR, Intelligence & Buildings etc.)
  • Catch-up examinations

we try to supervise up to 600 students simultaneously in up to 6-8 parallel courses. We have the capacity of 2.5 budget positions (1.5 WM, 1 Prof.) and additionally acquired teaching positions for this. Teaching accounts for only about half of our numerous activities (supervision of doctoral projects, acquisition and implementation of research projects, publications, expert opinions, academic self-administration, etc.). The administrative effort in teaching alone is not insignificant despite (or because of?) digitization (RWTHOnline, Moodle). Just for the registration, re-registration, and determination of grades in RWTHonline, we sometimes need several minutes for individual students. With individual, personal answers and explanations this quickly adds up to many hours a day.
