Is a degree right for me and if so, which one? Many young people ask themselves this question shortly before they graduate from school. The Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen ( THM ) wants to help young people to get a better insight into some of their departments. For this reason, she organized a project day for four graduating classes from the Offenbach Technical School in March on the Friedberg campus. During the day, the 38 students, divided into groups, were able to get to know the departments of industrial engineering, mechanical engineering, mechatronics, materials technology and information technology, electrical engineering and mechatronics. Dean of Studies Prof. Dr. Martin Graefe wished to start: "A very informative and exciting day."

The employees are concerned with finding individually suitable solutions. The way to get there is confidential, independent and free of charge.
