Mourning for Professor Gerald Kupris

31.01.2019 | DIT PR - It is with sadness, we remember Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gerald Kupris, who unexpectedly passed away last weekend. Professor Kupris was a deeply treasured and respected member of our university community, who will be sadly missed.

On 1 Oct 2009, Gerald Kupris was appointed to a professorship at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. He immediately applied energy and commitment to be actively involved in the development and success of our university.


Amongst others things, he coordinated the Applied Informatics degree. Under his management, our university successfully participated in national and international university competitions in autonomous driving. In 2015, he was elected to become dean of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Media Technology and Computer Science. He led his faculty forward to shape it into what it is today, never losing sight of long-term goals. His optimism, helpfulness and hearty, charismatic personality will be warmly remembered.

The news of his sudden passing saddened our university. Our condolences go to his family and to our colleagues who worked closely with him.
