NIT Students Awarded VDI Scholarship

Ivana Bradaric and Moses Kolade Ogun share this year’s VDI nachrichten scholarship, awarded in recognition of their outstanding achievements and their commitment. The scholarship comes with a cash award of €7,000.

The NIT and VDI nachrichten this year again awarded a partial scholarship worth €7,000 for the English-language MBA program in Technology Management at the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management. It is made to support high-performing engineers who are studying for the degree as an in-service program or alongside studying for a PhD. The purpose of the scholarship is to reward very good academic achievements and outstanding commitment to engineering.

In view of the many excellent applications the NIT jury decided to name two winners this year. The first prizewinner to convince the jury was Moses Kolade Ogun, born in Nigeria. Part of his research focus is on sustainable use of resources in waste paper recycling. He is also committed to promoting exchange between his native Nigeria and Germany. As President of Nigerian Scholars in Germany e.V. Moses aims to network Nigerian engineers in Germany in order to promote the exchange of information and knowledge. He represents other students as a founder member and President of the African Student Organization in Hamburg e.V. In recognition of his achievements he was awarded a scholarship of €4,000.

Croatian-born Ivana Bradaric, who came second, attended several courses at the NIT last year as a guest student because she wanted to add management competences to her previous education. Ivana, 32, convinced the jury by integrating swiftly into the NIT community and with her outstanding German language skills. Her career achievements are impressive too. With five years’ experience as a structural engineer she is employed as a project manager at a civil engineering firm, where she is responsible both for project development in structural engineering and for team coordination. Her commitment earned her a €3,000 scholarship.
