A father of university IT: Rolf Buchta celebrates 25 years of service

Rolf Buchta came to the still young Hof University of Applied Sciences in 1998, just four years after it was founded. Here, the native of Schauenstein now celebrated his 25th anniversary of service in the IT department. Rolf Buchta is considered to be a quiet, reliable and very conscientious colleague, as Matthias Schaller, deputy chancellor of Hof University, mentioned in his speech of thanks.

“Rolf Buchta has played a major role in building up the IT of our university as a leading head from the very beginning,” said Matthias Schaller, Deputy Dean of Hof University

He remains very difficult to replace. There is no sign of retirement in his case – he is devoting himself to his tasks as if it were a matter of passing his probationary period. Hof University has a lot to thank him for!”

In collaboration with Holger Karl, Rolf Buchta had most recently also competently implemented the digital university elections, among other things, but also the technical implementation of the scheduling and room planning from 2005, the development of a server virtualization platform or the creation of university software such as identity management were among his biggest projects

“Not least due to the constant expansion of the university, new challenges kept coming my way. To this day, it has always been a varied job where it never got boring.”
