New year - new dean

Prof. Dr. Ulrich Klauck wird neuer Dekan der Fakultät Elektronik und Informatik

The end of 2021 brought not only a start to the new year for Aalen University, but also many internal changes. With the election of the new Rectorate team around Prof. Dr. Harald Riegel, there was also a change in the Faculty of Electronics and Computer Science. Prof. Dr. Marcus Liebschner, who was Dean of the Faculty of Electronics and Computer Science for over three years, has been part of the Rectorate as the newly elected Vice-Rector since the beginning of the year. From now on, he will mainly focus on the topics of teaching, quality and STEM promotion.

At the same time, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Klauck became the new Dean of the Faculty. "I am very pleased to be able to continue in this position and contribute the experience I have gained at the university over the past almost 30 years. The faculty is very well organized and with the new team in the Dean's Office and all members of the faculty, we are well equipped for the challenges of the near future."

And there is no shortage of challenges. Perhaps the most urgent task at the moment is to bring students back to the university. Even if the faculty has coped well with the pandemic phase so far with its hybrid concept, we are and will remain a face-to-face university. High-quality education can only be guaranteed through face-to-face teaching and the associated joint learning and working. In addition, the Faculty plays an important role in the future topic of digitalization through its two areas of electronics and computer science. The university is making enormous efforts in research and teaching in this strategically important area. The faculty will continue to provide significant support here in the future.
