Every semester, RWTH Aachen University provides an extensive range of courses and examinations for students. The planning tool carpe diem! helps optimally plan all events in terms of both time and space. The carpe diem! team supports the coordination of the semester-accompanying planning and ensures the technical operation of the software.

    Training courses for the carpe diem! planning tool:
    Training courses for central course and examination planning with carpe diem! are offered for each planning phase. The training dates are chosen so that they are at the beginning of a planning phase during the planning data entry. The aim of the training courses is to provide the participants with basic knowledge on the respective topic. In addition, we ask participants to bring concrete questions and problems to the training and maintain and, if necessary, optimize the planning data of the courses or examinations they supervise.
