On August 30, 2016, Dr. Merith Niehuss, President of the Universität der Bundeswehr München (UniBwM), visited OIT with Dr. Geralt Siebert, Dr. Ingbert Mangering and Dr. Andreas Taras to pay a courtesy call on Dr. Yasushi Nishimura, President of OIT.
This is the first time for OIT to receive a courtesy call from UniBwM after the academic cooperation agreement between both universities was concluded in 2009.

The four professors from UniBwM also attended the 11th German-Japanese Bridge Symposium at OIT from August 30 to 31. They returned to Germany after the symposium.

Under the above-mentioned agreement, OIT held several academic conferences in the field of civil engineering in cooperation with UniBwM. Moreover, OIT is currently accepting a student from UniBwM as a research experience student under the guidance of his supervisor of OIT. Next year, OIT will accept another UniBwM student in the same program.

We strongly hope that the academic cooperation between UniBwM and OIT will be more expanded and the good relationship will continue in the future.
