The Consul General of the Republic of Kazakhstan in Munich, Dr. Denis Rogov, visited Hof University of Applied Sciences on 12.04.2022 together with a delegation. The focus of the visit was the exchange of information as well as getting to know the campus.
In conversation with university president Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Lehmann and Susanne Krause, head of the International Office, the cooperation and partnerships of Hof University with ten Kazakh universities, the double degree program in “Business Informatics” and “International Management” with Kazguu University and the student exchange in general were discussed.
The DAAD-funded project “i2p2 – “Cooperative Lectures SDU”, in which students from Hof University and Kazakh students from Suleyman Demirel University (SDU) in Almaty study together, met with particular interest. Once a week, a joint event is held on the topic of applied machine learning, in which the students carry out projects together. Thanks to the funding, the students can also visit the two countries and get to know each other personally. The goal is to create an open learning atmosphere through personal contact and team building.
The program then included a tour of the campus, during which Dr. Rogov was able to see the university’s excellent technical equipment, as well as an in-depth exchange with the more than 20 Kazakh students enrolled at the university.
