At 80 colleges and universities around the world
In case we have not told you yet: ThyssenKrupp is one of the world’s biggest diversified technology companies with around 150,000 employees in every corner of the globe. Of course, as a global company we have an active interest in helping people share scientific knowledge in all areas of the world, and promoting new talent in the international arena. This is why we work in partnership with a total of 80 colleges and universities worldwide. Much like the seven ThyssenKrupp Select Schools in Germany, we offer attractive sponsorship programs at these universities and support a variety of student projects.
Our partnership with Nishnij Nowgorod State Technical University (Russia)
Aside from providing comprehensive support in setting up appealing engineering degrees, we will help the university strengthen the practical relevance of its degree programs and research. By providing financial backing for the university’s “specialist and language Olympics” program, we will be successful in motivating more young people to study at the NSTU. Students will receive valuable support in choosing a career. Plans are also in the pipeline to introduce a special award and offer engineering students the opportunity to take part in business simulation games.
Our partnership with Tongji University, Shanghai (China)
Tongji University – considered one of the elite universities of the People's Republic of China – started its partnership with ThyssenKrupp as early as 1998. After setting up a professorship for mechanical engineering, the years that followed the partnership with ThyssenKrupp saw an expansion in courses in the area of financial accounting and business law. The latter area was part of a cooperation with Siemens. Apart from developing their specialist skills and intercultural understanding, students at Tongji University also enjoy the opportunity to do an internship at a ThyssenKrupp company or participate in business simulation games. On top of this, a variety of highly motivating recruitment drives have resulted in a selection of graduates qualifying for attractive positions within the ThyssenKrupp Group.
Our partnership with Waseda University, Tokyo (Japan)
Tokyo’s Waseda University – one of the two most prestigious universities in Japan – is relatively new to the ranks of ThyssenKrupp academic partnerships. Some examples of our partnership with this university: a series of Technology Days organized as part of the "Germany in Japan" initiative; a special symposium held over several days at the university. On top of this, our long-term partnership with the School of Engineering & Science has allowed us to offer students the opportunity to do an internship at a ThyssenKrupp Group subsidiary lasting several weeks.
As these examples demonstrate, ThyssenKrupp’s involvement in fostering new talent is already bearing fruit, so perhaps you would also like to take part in one of our future student exchanges…
