25 years at Hof University of Applied Sciences and just as long in the civil service – Vice President Prof. Dr.-Ing. Valentin Plenk now congratulated Jürgen Rubitzko from the engineering department on behalf of the entire university management
The Vice President for Research and Development expressed his personal thanks for the intensive cooperation, which connects him with the jubilarian:
“Jürgen Rubitzko has developed into the ideal colleague for me. He works quietly and independently. But when necessary, he asks awkward questions that advance a cause.”Prof. Dr.-Ing. Valentin Plenk (Vice President Research and Development)
According to Prof. Plenk, he particularly appreciates the detailed discussions with Jürgen Rubitzko, which they both have in quieter moments
The man congratulated on his anniversary began his career at Hof University of Applied Sciences in 1997 as deputy technical director of the then Computer Center. One year later, he was appointed Chief Technical Inspector. He then worked for the Virtual University of Bavaria (VHB) from 1999 to 2002. Since October 2002, he has been working as a laboratory engineer at the university.
Among the highlights of his career so far is first place in the “Digitaler Aufbruch der Lehre 2020” award. He received the EUR 10,000 award from the Freunde und Förderer der Hochschule Hof e.V. (Friends and Sponsors of Hof University of Applied Sciences) for a contribution that involved transferring entire laboratory practicals through the “Zoom” software, thereby enabling students to control and operate the machines available in the laboratory from home.
Working at Hof University of Applied Sciences continues to be very exciting and challenging, especially in light of the enormous tasks such as digitalization. However, my colleagues have always made it easy for me and I look forward to the coming years.”Dipl.-Ing. Jürgen Rubitzko
As a small token of appreciation, the jubilarian was presented with a meal voucher.
