NXP has been an important partner of the NIT for over 15 years and awards scholarships to outstanding students every year. This year, the Hamburg-based company is enabling two students from Class 20 to study Technology Management at the NIT. The lucky ones are Niklas Gollenstede from Germany and Juan David Londono from Colombia, who proudly received their scholarship certificates.

Good news: NXP awards further scholarships

NXP is also seeking to award further scholarships to the incoming class to support young talents who want to expand their technical knowledge and to include management skills. Up to two very good applicants (m/f) will be selected for the scholarship. Parallel to their studies at the NIT, students can complete a master's degree at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).

What should applicants bring with them?

This year, NXP is looking for applicants from the following fields of study:

  • Information & Communication Systems
  • Microelectronics & Microsystems
  • Computer Science
  • Mechatronics
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Applicants should also have very good programming skills (C/C++ etc.).

Ideal combination of practice and theory

In addition to financial support, scholarship holders also benefit from NXP in terms of content. For example, NIT master student and NXP scholarship holder Niklas Gollenstede is already working as a working student in the company and can therefore combine the knowledge gained during his studies with practical aspects at NXP. His fellow student Juan David Londono will also start as a working student at NXP in April 2019. In the next year both want to complete the study-integrated internship with NXP.

NXP is particularly interested in working with scholarship holders on the following topics:

  • IT security
  • Secure communication networks for industry 4.0
  • New security architectures for mobile platforms
  • Intelligent city and vehicle communication

If you are interested in a scholarship from NXP, please include it in the letter of motivation of your NIT application. Further information can be found here.
