Night of the Sciences: the NIT’s Program

Creative Techniques, Quiz and Cocktails: On November 4 the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management is opening its doors for the Night of the Sciences and a rich and varied program of activities. NIT CEO Verena Fritzsche deals in her talk with the risks and opportunities of digitization. In a Management Quiz the audience plays against a candidate to test whether he or she has the makings of a CEO. In the Design Thinking Space those who are interested can be creative and give the innovative Design Thinking method a try. And those who seek relaxation from the hue and cry of the campus can sample delicious cocktails from around the world served by the NIT’s international students.


Program of the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management

Test Design Thinking!

19 – 20 hours, NIT, TUHH Building F, Design Thinking Space (Room 1.04)

20.15 – 21.15 hours, NIT, TUHH Building F, Design Thinking Space (Room 1.04)

In Design Thinking entrepreneurs play the role of their customers, develop prototypes and put them to the test. Materials such as building blocks, figures and modeling clay spur on the play instinct and promote creativity and new ideas. With hands-on exercises the Design Thinking innovation method inspires users to develop new business models and products.

Supply Chain, HR, Sales – To succeed in the global economy you need an extensive specialized knowledge base. But interpersonal knowhow is no less important. How do I greet business partners in India? Who sits where at a conference table in China? And is a U.S. invite an empty phrase or a must-attend date? The NIT puts its candidates to the test and shows how far their career seems likely to go.



Industry 4.0 – What is it? Challenges, opportunities, Risks of Digitization

20.15 – 20.45 hours, TUHH Building N, Room 0.007

Pause for Thought

17 to 24 hours, NIT Foyer, TUHH Building F

Leave the hue and cry behind you and take it easy in the NIT Foyer, where delicious drinks await you. Students from all over the world will be mixing exotic cocktails. With your batteries recharged you can then embark on a “Mission Impossible” to develop and test in play your communication skills and resilience. Let’s just say that the going may be tough.
