Clausthal Night of the Proms

With celebration of the 25th anniversary of the doctorate and Science Elevator

An event for PhD students and graduates of the TU Clausthal with silver graduation, science elevator, music, drinks and networking.

Successful alumni of the TU Clausthal talk about their path to success. At the Clausthal Science Elevator, young scientists are invited to present their own research topic in the style of an elevator pitch.

At the "Clausthal Night of the Proms", the silver doctoral hats are awarded by the President of the Clausthal University of Technology on the occasion of the 25th doctoral anniversary of our alumni. At the same time, the successful alumni act as "career ambassadors" for our students and young academics by providing insights into their careers.

At the Science Elevator, young scientists present their research in an entertaining way and establish contacts with alumni of the Clausthal University of Technology who have had interesting and successful careers. In doing so, they receive impulses for their further career planning on the topic of "careers with a doctoral hat".

The Clausthal Night of the Proms is a joint event of the alumni management, the graduate academy and the doctoral students' representation of the TU Clausthal.
