computerspielenachtOn April 29th at 2 pm, after the Study information day of the HTWK, starts the 11th Night of computer games. Within the scope of the event, more than 20 individual events are held around the topics of computer games, consoles and robotics. More than 100 computers, real game machines, as well as board games and exhibitions, exposed on three floors in the Lipsiusbau of the HTWK. The night of  computer games is organized in co-operation between employees and students of the faculties Media and Informatics, Mathematics and Natural Sciences.

The UNINETTUNO is inspired by the teaching model of NETTUNO Consortium, through which thousands of students since 1992 have graduated from a distance thanks to the adoption of telematics, and the international project MedNet'U (Mediterranean Network of Universities), funded by the European Commission under the EUMEDIS program, for the creation of a Euro-Mediterranean distance University.

It was established by decree of 15 April 2005 by the Ministry of Education, University and Research and releases academic qualifications legally recognized in Italy, Europe and some Mediterranean countries.

It has established links and collaboration agreements with universities around the world, which in some cases also lead to the provision of joint academic degrees or double degrees.

HTWK is Partner within LMPI-Project


The LMPI project seeks to establish e-learning Bachelor's and Master's degrees for the protection of computer systems and networks in three Partner Countries, Vietnam, Moldova and Kazakhstan. In order to bridge skills gaps at both technician and engineering levels, the partners will develop a lifelong learning program in this area for employers. The curriculum to be developed will meet the needs of private companies which are seeking specialists to protect themselves against cybercrime.

As one of the celebrations of its 100th anniversary the UT Connewitz shows the fascination of cinemas in the form of an exhibition. The topics bundling through the history of UT Connewitz, range from the development of cinema art to the work of the UT Connewitz e.V. association. Centrepiece of the presentation are cinematographic projectors from all eras of the past 100 years, collected by Otto Semmler.

During the exhibition I will be present at the UT from September, 8th to September, 10th. I will explain the projectors and like to prepare and project 35mm movie trailers, together with visitors.
