Our Inside NIT social network is a virtual community for the entire NIT family – students and alumni, teachers, staff, partner companies, and many other NIT friends. It is exclusively for the NIT community.
As our alumni, you will meet old friends, make new friends, create your own groups, post and find job offers and job queries. You get special rates on our continuing education offers. Stay tuned to what is going on at the NIT with the more detailed Inside event calendar!

Our alumni are at home all over the world. They work in major metropolitan areas and in smaller cities. They keep in touch via social networks, alumni chapters, or our NIT Homecoming Weekend. And many of them meet up with their former fellow-students on a regular basis.
In 2002, graduates founded the NIT Alumni Network as a registered association. It is a self-governing association of alumni for alumni, closely cooperating with the alumni team at the NIT.
The principal objective of the alumni association is to maintain close personal and professional ties between classmates and members of different classes: keeping in touch and supporting each other in many ways via the valuable, close-knit, lifelong network founded at the NIT.
The idea to found the One of Us project was born in 2008. It is run by the NIT Alumni Network. Alumni make financial contributions to a fund set up to finance a scholarship for the double-degree program at the NIT. The first scholarship will be awarded for NIT Class 18.
The board of the NIT Alumni network was elected in 2017. All board members are Class 14 and 15 alumni.
Bahadir Cevdet Kavri, President,
is responsible for the event experience movement and the social network presence.
Jakobus Gäth, Vice-President,
is in charge of workflow management and professional networking.
Desirée Huber, Treasurer,
coordinates “One of us” project as well as the buddy program.
First it was Hamburg and now they’re off to see the world. Every year, NIT Class 14 alumni choose another destination and get to know one of their fellow-students’ home countries. They have already visited India and Hungary, and in 2016 they are visiting the United States.
Support individual NIT students as they make their way in their careers. For the upcoming Class we are still looking for alumni who would be happy to take on this role. As a mentor you will, for instance, arrange contacts with companies or support your mentee in the quest for an internship or with embarking on a career. The mentoring program aims not only to provide career-related assistance but also to promote the student’s personal development in an intercultural context.
Would you like to champion the NIT – and to do so across borders and continents? Then become an NIT ambassador. Around the world, our alumni tell young engineers about the double degree program at the Hamburg University of Technology and the NIT. You will be passing on your own experience by telling them about your studies in Hamburg. You will advise them on how to apply and provide exciting insights into possible career development after double-degree graduation.
Our alumni are at home all over the world. That is why there are alumni chapters in many countries as a regional networking facility. NIT and Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) alumni meet in these local chapters. Their most important link with their alma mater is the TU & You association.
You do good and have fun as you do it. Students and alumni regularly undertake commitments for a good cause, be it gardening at a hospice or paving a path at a workshop for the handicapped. Some NITers are also active in refugee assistance, such as by working pro bono as interpreters and much more.
Lifelong learning is a matter of course for NIT graduates, and many of them use their alma mater’s further education offerings. You can train yourself up in, for example, new leadership and digital transformation. And you benefit from special terms and conditions, of course.
Twice a year NIT CEO Verena Fritzsche invites a small group of alumni to share news and views. What’s new at the NIT? What wishes do alumni have? The Alumni Round Table is an important factor in contributing alumnis’ ideas toward daily work at the NIT. Be there yourself next time!
In the E-Track NIT students Matthias Schmittmann and Johannes Weber work on the business plan for their mobile gas chromatograph. That was in 2014. They went on to found their company, bentekk, and have since won one startup award after another. Refineries and environmental experts are by no means the only users of their portable measuring device.
Getting around town in an eco-friendly way is easy with the nüwiel bike trailer. You can transport things without difficulty and with little extra effort. NIT graduates Natalia Tomiyama and Sandro Rabbiosi designed a trailer with its own drive unit that makes smart use of braking and acceleration energy.
Alumni, students, teachers, partner companies and the NIT team are also linked in the LinkedIn business network, where you will find old friends and make new contacts. You can recommend the NIT. Follow the NIT’s university page and join the NIT alumni group!
NIT graduates are always alumni of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) too. With the TU & YOU initiative the TUHH aims to develop a closely-knit network of competences between alumni, students, teachers and staff and with representatives of business, politics, and the arts. The NIT works closely with TU & YOU on, for example, the joint Homecoming Weekend held in autumn every other year.
