The students speak fluent German, have had an outstanding education and bring an intercultural background with them, which places them in an ideal position for an international career – be it in research or in industry.
In order to intensify the collaboration, the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule (DHPS) Windhoek and TU9 have signed a cooperation agreement.
“We are delighted about the cooperation with TU9, which will greatly ease the transition of our outstandingly qualified and highly-motivated students to studying in Germany at one of the TU9 universities,” says Monika Pfänder, Head of DHPS Windhoek.
“In 2011, the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule was awarded the seal of approval of the German President for excellent German schools abroad,” says TU9 Executive Secretary Venio Piero Quinque. “As the TU9 association it is our aim to attract the excellent graduates of DHPS Windhoek to study STEM subjects in Germany. For this we provide the students with information on studying science and engineering in Germany. Through our cooperation agreement, we will intensify and consolidate our existing excellent relations to the Deutsche Höhere Privatschule Windhoek.”
TU9 is the association of the leading Institutes of Technology in Germany: RWTH Aachen, TU Berlin, TU Braunschweig, TU Darmstadt, TU Dresden, Leibniz Universität Hannover, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, TU München, Universität Stuttgart.
More than 240,000 students, or ten percent of all German students, are registered at TU9 universities.
In Germany roughly 50 percent of all engineers with university degrees come from TU9 universities; some 57 percent of the doctorates in engineering are awarded at TU9 universities.
