The management of DMT-LB, a company for teaching and education that owns the TFH, has appointed Mining Engineer Prof. Dr Ulrich Paschedag to the University of Applied Sciences, TFH Georg Agricola in Bochum, Germany, as the new Vice-President of the Faculty of Geo-Engineering, Mining and Technical Business Management. Paschedag takes on the role from Dr. Christoph Dauber, who is leaving his post on his own request.
“We are very happy that we have been able to add a renowned expert with long-standing experience in the relevant industry to the university staff,” commented Prof Dr Jürgen Kretschmann, Managing Director of DMT-LB. “Mr. Paschedag will help us to reinforce our practical focus in teaching and research even further. His excellent management qualities will be of additional benefit to the university’s management as will be his extended network of contacts in the international mining industry.”
Prof. Dr. Paschedag stated: “I would like to thank the management of DMT-LB for the trust that they are placing in me with the appointment as the Vice-President of the TFH, and I intend to continue the excellent work of my predecessor Christoph Dauber. My aim is to expand the collaboration with the industry when it comes to research and development. My numerous contacts, national and international, to partners at companies and universities will certainly assist me in this. They will also be of benefit to the students to whom we teach state-of-the-art engineering and technical know-how that will make them fit for the 21st century. I am very interested in a collaboration across disciplines, in particular with the colleagues of Mechanical and Process Engineering and Electrical Engineering as well as Information Technology.”
