The Senate of the TU Dresden regularly honors the best graduates of all degree programs for their excellent achievements. For more than 25 years, the top 2% of graduates in engineering have received the Enno Heidebroek award. From the class of 20/21 our young colleague Severin Engert was awarded.

His Master Studies in Media Computer Science included several courses of our chair, including Data Visualization, User Interface Engineering, and several lab projects. In his master thesis with the topic “Kinetic Sculptures for Personal InfoVis”, supervised by Konstantin Klamka and Raimund Dachselt, he developed a novel shape-changing display. Due to his exceptional achievements, Severin Engert became a member of our team after graduation to continue his research on Data Physicalizations.
