Market of Opportunities

Wednesday 12 - 3 p.m. in the PAB in the central building

At the Market of Opportunities, all central institutions of the HTWD and other relevant actors will present themselves with a booth:

Dresden Studentenwerk, Career Service, Gründungsschmiede, Center for Interdisciplinary Education, Student Counseling, International Office, University Library, Equal Opportunity/Inclusion Officer, Student Health Management, Student Council, faranto e.V., Project Lab X

It is a good idea to combine the visit to the market with lunch in the adjacent cafeteria of the HTWD, the Café Listig.

A visit to the Market of Opportunities is also worthwhile because at 1 p.m. in the foyer of the central building, 450 of the Student Welcome Package of the City Management Dresden will be handed out. The number is only limited - first come, first served. ;-)
