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 comprises modules from the fields of classical management, self-development, innovation management, business start-ups and digitalization. These modules familiarize students with the entrepreneurial challenges of the future.
Topics such as ethics, law or IT security deepen further important aspects of technology management. On the basis of real projects, our students learn to apply relevant innovation methods such as design thinking in practice and can also learn programming in the optional module "Coding". In this way, they develop skills that are in demand in an agile, digitized working environment. The MyProject module is central to the technology management course at NIT. Here, students supervise an innovation project that can serve as the basis for a new business area.
