A visitor from Germany, Hochschule Münich


A couple of weeks ago, we had a visitor from Munich University of Applied Sciences (HM), Ms Regina Seiberling. She was one of the well chosen administrative employees at HM who were granted a scholarship to spend a training week at one of HM’s international partner universities to gain insight into their field of work in the international arena. TAMK was chosen as Regina’s destination due to recommendation of previous visitors from HM!

Regina arrived on a cloudy weekend to Tampere, but the autumn weather didn’t bother her at all. Quite the opposite, she walked to TAMK from her hotel every morning and relished the brisk breath of air. She enjoyed her stay very much and was really pleased with the great opportunity to meet so many of TAMK representatives. Big thanks to all participants!

Regina’s own field of work includes the duties of the Secretary of Vice President for international affairs as well as Vice President in charge of research and development, technology transfer, entrepreneurship and quality management. At TAMK, Regina got to meet the Secretaries of the Management, International Coordinators and many others. She spent a couple of days with Ursula Helsky-Lehtola, the Service Coordinator of R&D and Education Services as they had much to talk about regarding their duties and common interests.

It was a great pleasure to have a visitor from HM, which is a popular exchange destination, in particular among the technology students. In fact, TAMK offers a double degree programme with HM in the field of Paper Engineering.

As the cooperation with Munich University of Applied Sciences continues, we wish to have more visitors here at TAMK. Thank you, Regina for a nice week!
