The NIT alumni network – A strong uNITy

Our over 650 alumni take care of keeping the network alive – by offering advice and assistance to our current students and providing insights and contact into their companies. They stay in touch via social networks such as LinkedIn, their alumni chapters or the annual NIT homecoming weekend. In all this, they are supported by the NIT Alumni & Community manager who acts as a link between all student generations, the NIT and the broader community.

Das Stipendien Projekt am NIT


Starting in 2008, the One of Us project is run by the NIT Alumni Network. Alumni make financial contributions to a fund intended to finance a scholarship for the double-degree program at the NIT. The first recipient of the scholarship was a student of NIT Class 18.


In 2002, graduates founded the NIT Alumni Network as a registered association. It is a self-governing association of alumni, closely cooperating with the alumni manager 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 current board of the NIT Alumni network is represented by Özge Isal, President, & Vadim Genin, Vice-President.

Alumni, students, teachers, partner companies and the NIT team are also 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 also alumni of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH). 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.


Would you like to support the NIT financially and give something back in return? Your donation will help to secure its high-quality management training for engineers in the future. A one-off or a regular donation several times a year? We are delighted with any amount you donate. As a nonprofit institution, the NIT is entitled to issue donation certificates that are tax-deductible in Germany.


Support individual NIT students as they make their way in their careers. We are always 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 mentees 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.



In the E-Track, NIT students Matthias Schmittmann and Johannes Weber worked 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 items without difficulty and with minimal extra effort.
