For outstanding students, the NIT offers a limited number of industrial scholarships granted by partner companies. The selection process for the Double Degree Program with an industrial scholarship starts in March. Apply as early as possible to improve your chances of receiving an industrial scholarship.
TUHH enrolment fees (approx. 300 EURO per semester) and NIT administrative fees (300 EURO per semester) are not covered by the scholarship and will have to be covered by the student.
The application process for these industrial scholarships is handled by the NIT. When applying for the Double Degree Program, please indicate in your Statement of Purpose for which industrial scholarship you would like to be considered and why you would be a worthy recipient of the scholarship. Please only choose one company (if your academic profile matches more than one scholarship program, the NIT Admissions Team may ask you to submit an additional Statement of Purpose at a later time). We expect you to visit the company's website before writing your Statement of Purpose to inform yourself about the company, its sites, its markets, its products and its philosophy. For further information about scholarships, please only contact the NIT, not the companies.
For the upcoming Class 20 (starting in September 2018), depending on your background, you can apply for a scholarship granted by one of the following companies:
