Graduation Posters

At the master graduation last week, all our graduates were presented with a graduation poster that illustrated highlights of studying either Computer Science or IT Product Development. This year’s posters are designed by master student Anna Maria Schierholz from computer science and bachelor student Annika Hoffmann from IT Product development. Thank you, Anna and Annika, we think both designs are original and very well-executed and will look great on any wall.

My poster, is inspired by the “Where’s Waldo?” or “Find Holger” books. Every scene represents a part of student life studying Computer Science at Aarhus University. Hopefully everyone can also find some courses and specializations they took during their studies at AU.

Big congratulations from me to the graduates and all the best for your future adventures!

Poster for IT Product Development Graduates

From my perspective IT Product Development represents an educational path that, in various ways, contains hidden treasures of both professional and social character. I believe that many students are not initially aware of both the challenges and the pleasant surprises, which turn out to be a part of the education. This has been the inspiration behind the poster, which at first glance appears an abstract, colorful creation but upon closer examination reveals many familiar elements from the education. The contrasting colors symbolize the unique community we have at IT Product Development, which is composed of many different people, with room for everyone.

Congratulations to all the graduates and best of luck in the future!

Graduates who were unable to attend the graduation ceremony, are welcome to contact Christina Gøttsche (csg@cs.au.dk) if coordinate pick up of a copy of the graduation poster.
