HPI Connect Events

In addition to HPI Connect Fair - the annual networking event for IT companies, students and alumni of HPI - HPI Connect also organizes other career-related events in collaboration with the student club “HPI Connect”.

HPI Connect Fair

Once a year companies and HPI students have the chance to get to know each other on the traditional HPI Connect company contact fair using the speed dating procedure.

  • The next HPI Connect Fair will presumably take place in May 2019.

„HPI meets…“ and „HPI inside…“

In the context of the series "HPI meets ..." we regularly invite companies for interesting TechTalks. In a relaxed atmosphere, students and alumni of the HPI can learn more about the techniques the company operates with and how the work of an IT engineer is. For the series "HPI inside ..." companies invite students and alumni to their offices.
