HPI Alumni Portraits

Currently, about 550 bachelor and master students are studying at the Hasso Plattner Institute. Since 1999, around 1500 alumni have already earned their bachelor's and master's degrees in "IT Systems Engineering". A number that will multiply in the next few years due to the new master's programs "Data Engineering", "Cybersecurity" and "Digital Health" and the steady growth of the institute.

Among the institute's graduates are also many successful founders. One particular success story, for example, is the HPI alumni start-up Signavio. The company was founded by HPI alumni Gero Decker, Nicolas Peters, Torben Schreiter and Willi Tscheschner in 2009 and was acquired by SAP in January 2021 for around 1 billion euros. 

Learn more about selected HPI alumni like Dr. Jürgen Müller, Member of the Executive Board at SAP SE; Janett Baresel, Senior Software Engineer and UI/UX Designer and Patrick Hennig & Philipp Berger from neXenio in the following video portraits.
