New Academic Partner of GUtech (THI)

Apr 17, 2024

GUtech´s Rector Prof. Dr. Michael Braun signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Prof. Dr. Walter Schober, President of Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI) in Germany, on March 26, 2024, to lay the foundation for a new strategic partnership.

The focus of THI is on technology and economics. In addition to outstanding practice-oriented teaching, THI is characterized by its research strength. “THI like GUtech is still a comparatively young university, but developed into a very innovative and renowned university with a strong focus on applied research with industrial partners. It is located in a very powerful economic region and will become an important pillar and an ideal partner within our outstanding international partnerships,” Prof. Dr. Braun said after the signing ceremony.

The MoU describes the fields of future collaboration such as mutual support in teaching and research, exchange of students, faculty, researchers and administrative staff, joint projects and research activities, collaboration and participation in seminars, lectures, symposia and academic meetings, further special academic programmes of short duration (e. g. summer schools) and work on a possible extension of the cooperation. A special emphasis is placed on the support of GUtech´s Master of Science in Hydrogen Economy and Technology Programme and the work towards a double degree programme in this area.
