How strongly do you recommend Christ University

Traveling internationally: We are strengthening our partnership with the Indian CHRIST University

Janardhanan Subramanian Saleema, Professor of Computer Science at CHRIST University, visited the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and the Institute for Technical Business Administration.

Laboratory tours are of course a must in Steinfurt (from left): Janardhanan Subramanian Saleema (CHRIST University), Prof. Dr. Susanne Maaß-Sagolla, Kirsten Elfering, and Ruth Kühn (all ITB at Münster University of Applied Sciences) hear the statements by Dean Prof. Dr. Reinhart's job too.

CHRIST University is located in the south of India, in Bangalore, and fits very well with the profile of our university. Just like with us, practical, application-oriented learning is very important and there is a similar interdisciplinary teaching. The concept of our industrial engineering training would also be interesting for CHRIST University. So far there has been the possibility of completing an MBA or a Master of Engineering. "In the intercultural space, engineers, economists and many other professions experience time and again that planning and time management, for example, are handled very differently and often lead to irritations and unnecessary difficulties," explains Prof. Dr. Susanne Maaß-Sagolla from the ITB. "With our comprehensive training and we want to prepare our graduates for the global professional life that awaits them."

Another idea: In November, a doctoral student from CHRIST University is giving a two-week compact course for our computer scientists in the master’s degree. “It's about bioinformatics, that is, the application of informatics in biology. This is a nice new topic, and we can only offer our students this option because of the cooperation, ”says Prof. Dr. Thomas Weik from the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, who maintains contact with the doctoral student through Saleema.

The business contacts that both universities bring into the partnership are also an advantage; Maaß-Sagolla and the research assistant Ruth Kühn-Krawolitzki drove to Münster with Saleema and visited BASF and Nicos AG. Projects are now being started there too, as the need for international specialists is high.
