We invent opportunities to meet with the university public or an interested professional audience. There is room for personal encounters and professional or interdisciplinary food for thought. The premises of the HFT provide the perfect setting for this. A selection of our formats is listed below.

 

 

Entrepreneur Forum

The Entrepreneur Advisory Board of the construction-related courses of study organises the so-called Entrepreneur Forum every two years together with the Dean's Office of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Building Physics and Economics. The aim is to provide students with orientation and new impulses for their personal and professional development. The economy in the construction sector has been running well for years. Nevertheless, individual students naturally ask themselves many questions regarding their own personal development:

How do I find out exactly what area I want to work in?

At which company do I apply for a position as a working student or Bachelor's student?

Which job suits my personality best?

Should I take another Master's degree and if so, which one and at what time?

Each time, the core of the event consists of the field reports of HFT graduates who reported on their career entry or, in some cases, on their long career paths. In the previous Entrepreneur Forums, the speakers provided insights into their respective careers in a very individual way.
