More than 20 selected alumni from 11 different countries visited the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) last week.

They met at DIT for the sixth Alumni Academy by BAYHOST, the centre for universities and technical colleges in Central, East and Southern Europe. The participants discuss “Health limits in present and future” in lectures and workshops.



“Alumni projects by the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) are highly popular; however it is not easy to win the bid. Therefore, we were glad that DIT hosted this year’s Alumni Academy”, said Ulrike Sauckel, who is responsible for alumni relations at DIT, after the five successful events.

Together with the team of the Faculty of Applied Health Care Science, she prepared a programme for the participating alumni, some of which travelled to Deggendorf from as far as Russia and Macedonia, for weeks.

The motto “Health limits in present and future” was discussed from various angles. Among other things, the participants were introduced to the research area of “individual health management” and the medical approach of the local clinic for traditional Chinese medicine at the Bad Kötzting-based Health Campus.

“I’ll return with more expertise and I’ve met great people”, said Dr. Oxana Matasova, a lecturer for German-studies at Saratow University.

BAYHOST regularly organizes successful alumni academies. Students from Eastern Europe who studied or who are doing their doctorate at a Bavarian university and then returned to their home country can apply. The event is financed by DAAD with means by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
