The word “alumni” is Latin and means “graduates” or “former students”. As a university, we aim to keep in touch with former students and to help alumni get in touch with each other. The purpose of this page is to provide information about this project.
The university works closely together with the FHL society, the FHL university association, and the student council. Information about common goals in the alumni projects will be published here.
One of the goals in this project is the on-going promotion of research and teaching by creating a strong network of alumni, university teachers, and of course the current HfTL students.
Together with our graduates, we want to increase public awareness of the university, and in the long run, focus on attracting new students. It goes without saying that the alumni project is not a one-way street. On top of the network itself, we also regard continuing education of network members and their integration into HfTL research and development processes as one of our top priorities of the project.

Our Alumni Network
The HfTL alumni network is a way for former students, teachers, and staff to exchange information. It also allows alumni to establish contacts with one another. Alumni and staff at the Deutsche Telekom Universities of Applied Science in Leipzig, Berlin, and Dieburg, as well as Deutsch Post’s “Rosa Luxemburg” engineering college are part of the network.
Die alumni project is part of the university’s sustainable development strategy. Its goals align with those of the university, i.e. enhancing teaching and research quality, strengthening international ties, and promoting equal opportunity and gender equality.
The alumni network:
- creates synergies by facilitating the exchange of knowledge, ideas, and experience
- is a public forum which promotes innovations and excellence
- supports the further professional development of network members
- contributes to research findings being implemented in business and applied in the professional practice
- increases the practical relevance of study programmes
- helps students find their first job.
The HfTL has various means of helping alumni keep abreast of events, providing them with first-hand news from the world of science and letting them know about what’s happening at the university.
The Alumni Office will gladly inform you about the latest science and research projects at the HfTL. New issues of the recently launched alumni newsletter will be published several times a year and contain topics relevant to the university: news and new research findings, event announcements, and special offers for alumni.
