Austrian Ambassador Awards Diplomas to Graduates of Double-Degree Program
On June 28, 2017, the second graduation ceremony for the double-degree Master’s program in Big Data Systems (HSE, Russia) and Information Systems Management (UAS Technikum Wien, Austria) was held at the Austrian Residence. Dr. Emil Brix, Ambassador of Austria in Moscow, gave the opening speech. He congratulated this year's 10 graduates and stressed the importance of international cooperation between the universities. Fritz Schmöllebeck, Rector of UAS Technikum Wien, issued an official letter in which he expressed deep satisfaction with the fruitful long-term partnership between the two universities.
Under the agreement between the HSE and UAS Technikum Wien, students attended classes in both Russia and in Austria and presented their Master’s theses to a joint examination committee. Co-operation between the universities was supported twice through Erasmus+ academic mobility grants, which funded students from both universities.
