Graduation Ceremony 2021

Mr. Jacob Friedl won the Andritz price for the best Bachelor basic studies.
Mr. Jelle Schuivens received the Palm Award for the best Master degree.

At the end of the summer semester 2021, the graduates of the German Bachelor study course “Verfahrenstechnik Papier und Biofasern” (translation: Paper Technology and bio-fibres) and of the English Master study course in “Paper Technology”, took their leave from the Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences.

Due to the COVID restrictions the usual annual ceremony could not be held. This typically consists of festivities that includes family members and invited guests from industry. However, it was important to us to recognise the graduation of our students. Therefore, a cordial meeting in one of Munich’s famous beer gardens was organised instead.

During the jovial get-together in the beer garden, the laureates of the Bachelor and Master courses also received their certificates. Mr. Jacob Friedl was awareded the Bachelor basic studies award for the best two first-semesters. This grant is sponsored by the company Andritz and was presented by Mr. Ernst Kerschhofer (Vice President, Global Product Group Manager Pulp & Paper Services).

The “Palm Award”, sponsored by the company Palm, was awarded to Mr. Jelle Schuivens as the best graduate from the Paper Technology Master programme. This was a special delight for Mr. Stephan Gruber (Chief Technical Officer Papierfabrik Palm) who presented the award, since as of late Mr. Jelle Schuivens is one of his employees.

Congratulations to the awardees!
