On December 11, 2009 the Geo Education Awards for excellent achievements in teaching in the field of geodesy at TU Vienna were awarded for the first time.

The selection process for the award is two-stage: the selection of nominees is based on the results of the student’s online teaching evaluation. The prize winners are choosen by the dean for academic affairs, the chairman of the committee for studies and two student representatives. The prize can be given to senior as well as junior teachers.

For the first Geo Education Awards ceremony the speakers were the dean for mathematics and geoinformation Prof. Dietmar Dorninger and the vice rector for academic affairs Prof. Adalbert Prechtl. In the first ceremony the awards were given for the previous two academic years.

We congratulate the winners and thank for their commitment!
