With the NIT/TUHH Double Degree Program, you graduate with two master's degrees at the same time: MSc and MA. The double degree master’s program is designed for ambitious young engineers who strive to become responsible technology managers in a globalized world. During the two-year program, students acquire a broad spectrum of knowledge and skills both in engineering and in management. They grow professionally and personally as they prepare for responsible positions in different industries. NIT graduates set out to make a positive impact on the world.

In the double-degree model, students enroll in an M.Sc. program in engineering at the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) and in the master’s program in Technology Management at the NIT Northern Institute of Technology Management at the same time. The TUHH offers six M.Sc. programs in English:

  • Chemical and Bioprocess Engineering
  • Environmental Engineering
  • Information and Communication Systems
  • Mechanical Engineering and Management
  • Mechatronics
  • Microelectronics and Microsystems
  • ... and a lot more in German.

Students at the NIT benefit from small study groups, interactive classes with international faculty, an intercultural learning environment, and a constant combination of theory and practice through case studies, simulations, guest speakers, field trips, and internships.

The NIT master’s program is designed to be studied in part-time, in parallel to the MSc program, with classes in the evenings, on the weekends, and during two four-week spring schools, offered in March of the first study year and in February of the second year, respectively.

Students with less than two years of work experience after their first university degree complete their studies at the NIT with a Master of Arts.
