If necessary other certificates can be recognised. Please contact us!
Statement of purpose
The statement of purpose (max. two pages) should include your reasons for undertaking graduate work in the chosen field of engineering at TUHH, your motivation to pursue the additional technology management program at the NIT and your future career plans. If you want to apply for one of the industrial scholarships, please specify in your statement of purpose which scholarship you want to be considered for and give reasons why you are interested in the specific sponsoring company. Please only choose one company (if your academic profile matches more than one scholarship program, the NIT Admissions Team may ask you to submit an additional Statement of Purpose at a later time).
2 Letters of recommendation
The letters of recommendation should be issued by faculty members acquainted with the applicant's work in the major area of undergraduate study. If that work occurred some time ago, recommendations from those supervisors familiar with the applicant's professional performance are acceptable as well. Please upload the letters of recommendation in one pdf. Referees may also send the letters of recommendation directly to the NIT (admissions@). In that case, please instruct the referees to indicate your name and your TUHH application number in the subject heading of the email. Please leave the upload field empty, if you do not have your letters of recommendation yet or if your referee wants to submit the document directly to the NIT. nithh.de

For outstanding students, the NIT offers a limited number of industrial scholarships granted by partner companies. The selection process for the Double Degree Program with an industrial scholarship starts in March. Apply as early as possible to improve your chances of receiving an industrial scholarship.
For the new Class 20 we are very happy about the support of the following companies:
NIT's industrial scholarships are worth 4,900 EURO per semester and cover the tuition fee for the Technology Management program. TUHH enrolment fees (approx. 300 EURO per semester) and NIT administrative fees (300 EURO per semester) are not covered by the scholarship and will have to be covered by the student.
More Information on applying for a scholarship:
The application process for these industrial scholarships is handled by the NIT. When applying for the Double Degree Program, please indicate in your Statement of Purpose for which industrial scholarship you would like to be considered and why you would be a worthy recipient of the scholarship. Please only choose one company (if your academic profile matches more than one scholarship program, the NIT Admissions Team may ask you to submit an additional Statement of Purpose at a later time). We expect you to visit the company's website before writing your Statement of Purpose to inform yourself about the company, its sites, its markets, its products and its philosophy. For further information about scholarships, please only contact the NIT, not the companies.
