Christian, Fritz and Marina studied Human-Technology Interaction (MTI) at Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences and enthusiastically share their experiences.

When the three former students Christian Ginter, Fritz Süß and Marina Reich enrolled in Human-Technology Interaction (MTI) at Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences, they wanted to study something innovative that was future-oriented and combined different disciplines. In this course, students work at the interface between technology, social sciences and psychology. The aim is to identify the challenges and needs of people from different settings and to develop, implement and, of course, evaluate technical solutions. One area in which there is a great demand for such skills is medical technology. The innovative and interdisciplinary concept of the Bachelor's degree program in Human-Technology Interaction at the Department of Engineering and Industrial Design convinced the three graduates.


For Christian Ginter, the combination of psychology and technology was particularly exciting. “I am equally interested in both fields and was motivated to work in interdisciplinary teams. The career prospects after graduation also appealed to me.” The plan worked out. After graduating, he joined “Hasomed GmbH”, an international medical technology and software company based in Magdeburg, where he works as a junior IT project manager. His organizational skills are in demand in his day-to-day work. “Not only do I work closely with my project team, but I also communicate with almost every department in the company.” His studies prepared him well for this. “In addition to the technical focus, I appreciated the small size of the learning groups and the exchange with lecturers and fellow students.”


After completing her studies, Marina Reich decided to pursue a career at the state capital Magdeburg. She works there as a key account manager for process digitization. In her extremely varied day-to-day work, she cooperates with numerous departments and actively supports them in their digitalization process.

During her studies, she already had the opportunity to participate in numerous exciting, regional and varied projects and can now say: “I am very satisfied with my job.” Nevertheless, she can well imagine specializing further with a Master's degree at a later date.

Graduate Fritz Süß would also like to deepen his expertise in the field of human-technology interaction, and Christian Ginter also states his future aspirations: “I plan to gain further practical experience in project management.”


In his day-to-day work as a project coordinator in the field of digitalization and occupational safety at Studentenwerk Magdeburg, Fritz Süß is involved in developing digital solutions for optimizing work processes and ensuring occupational safety. To this end, he coordinates project teams, communicates with external partners and ensures that progress is continuously monitored. His tips for all MTI students are: “Take full advantage of the diversity of the degree course and try to keep at it. Take advantage of the wide range of topics to develop a comprehensive understanding and perhaps think about the direction you want to take afterwards while you are still studying.” Marina and Christian also emphasize the enjoyment aspect of studying: “Enjoy the green campus and take part in social events.”
