With our Double Degree Program you graduate with two master's degrees at the same time. Here is how it works: at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), you enroll for an engineering master's program of your choice, combining it with an MA or an MBA in Technology Management at the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management. With this unique combination of degrees, your skills will be in demand as you can then combine technical know-how with firm grasp of management in an international marketplace.
This multidisciplinary master's program offers a possibility to gain a broad knowledge in both biotechnological processes and classical chemical engineering. Apart from the basic knowledge in biological and biocatalytic processes, separation technologies, mechanical and reaction engineering, you will get an insight into the most challenging problems on the boundaries between these disciplines and participate in the collaborative research of several departments.
The NIT curriculum includes fundamental general management courses such as economics, finance, strategy, supply chain management, and marketing. In addition, courses like corporate responsibility, business ethics, and teamwork let you learn and reflect about how to become responsible managers and good leaders. A three-month internship in industry is integrated. Every student learns a foreign language other than English as part of the program. You have a choice of two specializations: the classic Track in Technology Management or Entrepreneurial Management.
