Around 2,500 interested people attended the University Information Day (HIT) 2024 at TH Wildau last Saturday. The university's most important day, which the team has been working towards for weeks and months, once again attracted numerous curious visitors to the campus in bright sunshine and Wildau University of Applied Sciences offered a varied programme.

Last Saturday at 10 a.m., the starting signal was given for the University Information Day at Wildau University of Applied Sciences (TH Wildau), or HIT for short. After the welcome and opening by President Prof. Ulrike Tippe and Wildau's Mayor Frank Nerlich, the attendees spread out across the campus, as the programme was packed with course presentations, lectures, practical exercises, lab tours, campus tours and other highlights.

One of these immediately followed: Prof Ulrike Tippe and Katharina Marienhagen, Managing Director of GB infraSignal GmbH, gave the ceremonial starting signal for the first traffic light system (LSA) for teaching and research on the campus of TH Wildau. In future, students will be able to learn about traffic technology at first hand at the traffic signal system and experiment with a real control unit and a signalling programme, for example. The system is the first component of the new traffic management laboratory on campus, which TH Wildau and GB infraSignal GmbH are building together as co-operation partners.

Voyage of discovery on campus

The presentations of the technical and scientific degree programmes, including Industrial Engineering, Telematics and Aeronautical Engineering / Aviation Management, were particularly popular. However, the presentations of the Business Administration, European Business Management and Business Informatics degree programmes were also well attended, along with many others. Guests were also able to obtain information at over 40 centrally located stands on campus. As always, the many modern laboratories in the halls and buildings of the campus university with presentations and practical exercises were in great demand: Here, for example, attendees could look at telephone chips from 1998 under a microscope, try out driving or flight simulators or drive small mini-trucks in the Future Mobility Centre. In Hall 14, a humanoid robot was busy signing autographs - much to the delight of the youngest visitors. Some of its siblings also made their rounds on the campus. During the regular campus tours in German and English, visitors were able to get to know the campus as well as the university buildings and receive useful information about studying.

A total of around 2,500 interested people were on the campus between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., finding out about the university's study programmes and services and gaining insights into current research projects. Even a group from Malaysia was on site and learnt about Wildau University of Applied Sciences during an English-language campus tour.

"We can look back on last Saturday's HIT 2024 with happiness and satisfaction. We were able to welcome numerous interested people from the region and beyond and hopefully inspire them to study at TH Wildau, as the next winter semester is just around the corner. A big thank you goes to all those involved from the entire university who were so committed,’ says Michael Schmidt, Event Manager at TH Wildau.

"The work of the past weeks and months has definitely paid off. It was a great university information day with interesting discussions everywhere on campus. We will remember this positive atmosphere for a long time to come and are already looking forward to the next HIT on 24 May 2025,’ adds Juliane Bönisch, Head of Marketing Communication / Event Management and Alumni of TH Wildau.
