Picks from the course feedback of CS-E4340 Cryptography:

The lectures were great. Maybe even one of the best among all the course I’ve attended so far.

I have to put strong emphasis of how impressed I am with the dedication and commitment of Chris in this course, he truly went beyond the requirements and crushed my expectations on how teachers at a university can care about their students.

The teacher award has been granted since 2007. This year, a total of 28 proposals were received and 15 teachers nominated for the award. The teacher of the year receives a certificate of honour and a reward of 1000 euros.
