Students and their internship

I am Rutwik Hrushikesh Godse from Pune, India. I am pursuing my masters at bbw university in Berlin. Currently in the third semester of International Technology Transfer Management. Reason for choosing this course is simple yet life defining. This course offers me a perfect blend of Technology and Management. bbw university offers international students a mind boggling exposure. The students are welcomed and helped to grow. How does the university achieve this? Well I might be the answer. I feel proud to be the Vice President of the Student Parliament of this University. The staff is not only highly qualified but also very helpful and caring. Solely merit defines what you get here and nothing else comes in the way. The university also enables its students to have a hands on experience by including mandatory internships in its courses. Guess what I am an intern in one of Germany's biggest conglomerates, Siemens AG. My role is of a Plant test engineer. My duties include System testing and Product Management working in Agile management. Working with the world's leading developers in their own country speaking their own language is the stand out feature of this opportunity. It goes without saying that this wouldn't have been possible if it wasn't for my university. University's faithful actions and my positive attitude have brought me where I am today.

I am currently in the third semester for International Technology Transfer Management. I am doing my internship at Continental Automotive GmbH, located in Regensburg. I am working in infotainment, product management and sales department. Now I am dealing with two softwares, SPOT and SAP, for the demand planning. I am also working on logistic planning. I like the bbw university, it gave me the opportunity for my Master's study. The degree program International Technology Transfer Management is very good, because in this course we learned many subjects. It includes a variety of fields like project management, logistic and for example international business law. Because of that I am able to work in different areas. I feel very well that I got the chance to work with a reputed company. Lastly I want to say that success is no accident. It is hard work, learning, sacrifice and most of all it is love of what you are doing or learning to do.

Statements of students

Hi, I am Mrinalini Mehta. I am from New Delhi, India and am currently pursuing a Masters in International Technology Transfer Management (ITTM). I chose Germany for my Master studies as this country is a land of opportunities. The most inspiring part for me is how enthusiastic this country is to support it's national and international students in every possible way! Be it the financial support, students' discounts, free access to wifi or reduced tickets. Seems like Germany doesn't want to let anything stop the youth from progressing. Choosing bbw University for ITTM was one of the wisest steps I have taken, as this course is a sprouting branch for several fields relating to technology transfer, which is going to be the next big thing on the platform of globalization very soon. Working hard here in bbw, I wish to build my carrier in the field of technology transfer, and go further in technology to the transfer of space technologies, i.e., from technologies designed for space to the commercial market and vice versa. I also hope that someday I can go back to my country, which is still in a developing phase, and establish strong and amicable relations between Germany and India for mutual progress through technology transfer.
