Foreign students enrich not only the research but also the culture of a university. In recognition of this, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) provides funds to award an annual prize to outstanding foreign students.
This year, the International Office selected Skander Kamoun. The prizewinner from Tunisia has been doing his doctorate and research as a research assistant at the Institute of Aerodynamics and Gas Dynamics (IAG) in the Aircraft Aerodynamics group since September 2023. In addition to his professional qualifications, he received the award primarily because of his strong social commitment. He was involved in intercultural exchange between students at AIESEC and was a member of the Tunisian group of the on-line network IVAO.
The DAAD prize will be awarded on Day of Teaching and Learning on April 10, 2024.
