In order to ensure high quality of the lecture programs, the Faculty of Engineering evaluates its courses regularly. The students are asked for their rating and comments in the middle of each semester. This early time allows the lecturers to discuss the results with the students before the end of the semester.
About 250 courses are evaluated every semester. In total an average of 18000 questionnaires is evaluated per year, approximately two thirds in German and one third in English language.
Questionnaires since WS 2012/13
In winter semester 2012/13 the questionnaires for the course evaluation were revised. This resulted amongst others in a separation of the questionnaires for lectures and exercises. For some courses this separation makes no sense, which is why the lecturers have the choice of whether they carry out separate surveys for lecture and exercise or prefer a combined survey. Also the labs are now included in the canon of the evaluation with a separate questionnaire for this.
