IAIK Bachelor Excellence Award
This award is for students doing a major in “Information Security” at TU Graz and that have completed their Bachelor’s degree with distinction at TU Graz. The first awards will be handed over in October 2024. The concrete procedure and eligibility for these first awards in 2024 are as follows: A student is eligible for the award if the student completes a Bachelor’s degree at TU Graz with distinction (Gesamtbeurteilung „mit Auszeichnung bestanden“) between October 1st, 2023 and September 30, 2024 and if that student enrolls for a major in “Information Security” as part of a Master’s degree program in Computer Science (CS), Information and Computer Engineering (ICE), or Software Engineering and Management (SEM) at TU Graz during the same time frame. Both conditions need to be fulfilled by a student for receiving an award.
The award consists of an Award Certificate and up to 1.000 Euro.

Award payments are bound to this requirement and the commitment to complete the major in “Information Security”. The total payment sum for IAIK Bachelor Excellence Awards is limited to 8.000 Euro. No student will receive more than 1.000 Euro. In case there are more than 8 awardees, the total payment sum of Euro 8.000 will be distributed equally among all awardees. Eligible students are required to apply for the award by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes name, student ID number, a transcript of records of the completed Bachelor degree, and a copy of the corresponding Bachelor certificate.
The award program is planned to continue in 2025 and is planned to be announced at Bachelor@IAIK in 2024.
