My two years at NIT have enhanced my professional as well as personal skills. Lifelong learning and the networks developed during this amazing journey are the highlights of this challenging Double Master’s program.
My tutor is Prof. Kreft. He is an awesome person. Last year, he helped me a lot when I was looking for my internship. He even organized a mock interview and shot a video for me. I often consult him when it comes to planning my career. I have now moved to Munich for my thesis and I miss the days in Hamburg when I could visit him more often. He is definitely an awesome mentor.
During the application process, I realized NIT is not a 'normal' university. For instance, two letters of recommendation, proof of work experience and a personal interview was a challenging application process. However, after one year of studies, I can say it was definitely worthwhile.
