The UNITECH International Society was founded in 2000 with an aim to enable the academic and corporate worlds to jointly develop a group of talented young engineers that can successfully manage future challenges in global industry and help bridge the gap between the corporate and academic world. UNITECH also provides a valuable platform for networking and exchange of ideas. In particular, it is an ecosystem preparing the next generation of leaders to solve global challenges in a world with increasing levels of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity (VUCA).
When I was a UNITECH student, I really appreciated the opportunity to gather my first professional experiences in a supported way, where I could access inspiring leaders that offered guidance and advice during my first years navigating the world of international business. The way UNITECH enables students to gain experience is really beneficial - also on the side of the company, which gains fresh perspectives and motivating new viewpoints
