Over 30 students have enrolled this year for the Master's program at the NIT (Northern Institute of Technology) Management. The students come from more than 10 different countries and represent four continents. The new class consists of ten Indian, eight German, three Nigerian, two Pakistani, one Egyptian, one Colombian, one Canadian, one American, one Bulgarian, and one French students. A Filipino student will also be studying at NIT again after 15 years. This means that more than 600 students from 65 countries have worked on their Master's degree at the NIT.
Class 21 is not only very international, but the age of the students ranges broadly from 21 to 34 years and the proportion of women is almost one third. On the annual Welcome Evening, the students got to know each other for the first time, and many students from the older classes joined in to welcome the newcomers. Over a traditional German dinner, the students conversed and learned about German eating habits.
22 of them are also studying another Master's degree at the Technical University of Hamburg. By opening up and expanding the range of available courses to 120 credits, ten students have fortunately decided to complete the Master's program alongside their job or doctoral thesis. This facilitates the wide variety of students in different disciplines and cultural backgrounds to come together.
We wish Class 21 a good start and much success at the NIT!
