During this meeting, the Lord Mayor of Cologne receives two honors for his extraordinary commitment and outstanding services to the Cologne University of Applied Sciences. The board of trustees of the university honors its founding member and long-term chairman with the appointment of an honorary member. An award that is being presented for the first time. At the same time, the university thanks its honorary senator and long-standing member of the Association of Friends and Supporters of the Cologne University of Applied Sciences with the award of its medal of honor. The awards will be presented to Mayor Burger on Tuesday, August 10, 1999 at 4 p.m. in the rotunda of the humanities center (Claudiusstrasse 1, 50678 Cologne). Further topics are the master's course "Technology in the Tropics", the new course "Media Informatics" at the Gummersbach department and current information on the extraordinarily successful development of the model college for business in Nizhny Novgorod.

As the first department of the Cologne University of Applied Sciences, the internationally renowned Institute for Tropical Technology offers the additional course "Technology in the Tropics" as a master’s course. The four-semester interdisciplinary additional course "Technology in the Tropics", which took up students for the first time 23 years ago, was initially aimed primarily at German graduates of engineering, agricultural or natural science courses. They should be prepared for the complex technical, economic and human tasks in countries of the tropics and subtropics. For about 13 years, more and more students from Africa, Asia and Latin America have been able to enroll. Many of them receive a DAAD scholarship from a program for university cooperation financed by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Due to the high proportion of foreigners, the additional course has the character of an international course. In addition, the BMZ has made funds available through the DAAD for research stays that are necessary to prepare for theses. In addition, the German Society for Technical Cooperation (GTZ) gives many students the opportunity to work on ongoing projects. Graduates of the additional course "Technology in the Tropics" will in future receive the academic degree "Master of Engineering". This means that they also meet the requirements for a doctorate.

The new media informatics course of the computer science department of the Gummersbach department will be launched as a tiered Bachelor / Master course. With the establishment of this new range of courses, the university is responding to the growing demand for computer scientists who specialize in the basics and application of multimedia systems. Applications for bachelor's and master's degree programs are also among others. in the fields of plant and process engineering as well as electrical power engineering.
