Guest lecture in Japan

Peter Burgstaller, professor in the Secure Information Systems department, visited our partner universities Iwate Prefectural University and Tsuda College in Japan in late April, where he lectured on the topics „Network and Information Security“ and „Data Protection in the EU and how the EU works“.

About 110 Japanese students attended his guest lectures and showed great interest in his presentations .

Dr. Burgstaller, who is also a lawyer, about his trip to the Land of the Rising Sun:  “This stay in Japan was a valuable experience for me, both personally and professionally. Our Japanese partners see co-operating with our institution as highly desirable because Japanes students consider studying at an European university a great advantage to their career.” 

Professor Burgstaller’s visit in Japan was sponsored by the Erasmus+ International Project.
