Physicist Dr. Frank Stefan Becker is in charge of Corporate Communications and Government Affairs at Siemens AG. An expert on education and higher education he has represented the corporation on issues like the training of engineers, standards required of young graduates, or the reform of degree courses (Bachelor’s/Master’s) for many years. He knows all about the education students receive at TU Darmstadt and confirms their bright career prospects:

“I believe that the strong focus on practical training at TU Darmstadt gives its graduates a clear competitive edge on the employment market. Solid expertise and practical experience are among recruiters' most important selection criteria when choosing young professionals; they are, in a way, your entrance ticket to a good career. Later on, as you climb the ladder, interpersonal skills come into play. They are hard to quantify, but I would say that among them are ethical integrity and openness to the world beyond the limits of your own professional field.”
