The partnership between TU Graz and TU Darmstadt is quite a specific one: Scientifically on a very high level the cooperation covers many departments in both countries at both universities. Although including many researchers and staff we always feel like working with friends. The Austrian Gemütlichkeit (cosy atmosphere) combined with Styria´s charm makes it easy for me to like working with our colleagues from TU Graz immensely.

Virtual Joint Lecture Series: TU Darmstadt – TU Graz

Stefan KURZ, Electromagnetism and Mathematical Modelling (M4EM) group, TU Darmstadt:

I am currently conducting a joint lecture series on Electromagnetics and Differential Forms during the Summer Term 2021 within the framework of the strategic partnership between TU Darmstadt and TU Graz. I started this endeavor 2017 in Darmstadt, with a small group of enthusiasts, as a classical black-board format.

With the help of the incentive budget I was able to evolve the lectures into an E-Learning format, including elements such as quizzes in the tool „feedbackr“. This was accomplished in close collaboration with the Institute of Applied Mathematics at TU Graz. What I like a lot about this format: it admits learning in a European network, which might even include further universities in the future. This provides a fresh spirit to Humboldt’s community of teachers and scholars - universitas magistrorum et scholarium.
