The academic senate upheld him in its Monday vote, held upon the proposal of STU Rector Miroslav Fikar on the grounds that Kotuliak had lost his trust.
The rector took the step on the heels of events that unfolded over the past few months at Slovakia's most prestigious IT faculty, culminating in 26 academic staff resigning due to quarrels with the faculty management.
To remove Kotuliak from the position, 23 votes of the academic senate were needed, but only 18 senate members voted for his removal, the Sme daily reported.
