Firms in Hamburg lending support to young engineers

Dual master programme for top students at TUHH and NIT - firms offering scholarships to outstanding applicants

Companies across Hamburg are offering scholarships to particularly good students who are pursuing a Master of Science at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg (TUHH) and a Master in Technology Management at the Northern Institute of Technology Management (NIT) simultaneously, according to a press release on February 21, 2017. Around 40 professors at TUHH founded NIT in 1998 to offer such dual master courses to students from all over the world in Hamburg.

Win-win situation for firms and students

“We value the engineers from NIT who bring along both technical know-how and a knowledge of business management,” said Georg Menges, of NXP Semiconductors Germany GmbH, which has supported NIT for many years. He added: “During their internships in our company, we can give them targeted and responsible assignments. It is a win-win situation for both the company and students.” ArcelorMittal Hamburg, Jungheinrich, Lufthansa Technik, Thomas Matzen GmbH, NXP Semiconductors, Procter & Gamble and Vattenfall Wärme are just some of the companies that are likely to provide internship places this year for outstanding students. NIT’s master programme prepares ambitious young engineers for exciting global challenges. During the two-year engineering course, the students also undergo thorough management training.

Close links between theory and practical work

NIT’s students benefit from interactive and personal instruction given by international tutors and lecturers as well as the intercultural learning atmosphere. The various case studies, simulation models, excursions and internships as well as keynotes by guest speakers solidify the links between theoretical knowledge and practical work. This year’s English-language programme begins with an intense German language course in September. Applicants must have completed a B.A. in Engineering or IT subjects and a very good command of English.
