NDU ADVANTAGES: PRACTICE AND THEORY The theory is important but it does not make a successful event manager on its own. In practice, however, the name of the game is to keep your finger on the pulse: the event industry is fast-moving, and today’s technical know-how may already be outdated tomorrow. Study at the NDU caters for this, teaching an ideal balance of practice and theory tailored to the special requirements of the job profile and the needs of the industry. The knowledge taught is always at the leading edge, as is the technical equipment used at the university. And the training is always hands-on: whether it’s practice or theory, the skills and knowledge you acquire at the NDU will always stand you in good stead in your daily work – both the soft skills and the technical hard facts. PROFESSION AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Event management is a many-sided job, involving a high level of flexibility, creativity, and communication. Your daily routine is not routine. In your position as the central pillar of a successful event, you review specifications given by clients and artists with regard to their feasibility and draw up a concept for implementation. Together with the artistic and commercial decision-makers, you coordinate experts and suppliers (light, audio, and video equipment, pyrotechnics, catering, etc.), draw up event plans and safety concepts, take care of official procedures, control resources, and budgets, and supervise the technical team. As an academically trained event engineer, you will impress clients with your excellent knowledge of cutting-edge event technologies and your expertise in event marketing and event safety. Your unique profile makes you a highly valued specialist for advertising and event agencies, for the culture and sports industry, and for conference centres, authorities, and organisers. KNOWING WHAT WORKS (AND HOW) Audio engineering, light engineering, pyrotechnics, special effects, event management, and event dramaturgy. The Event Engineering course at the New Design University features all of this and much more. The course combines technical expertise with organisational know-how and important soft skills. Event engineering is not an end in itself, but rather a key instrument with which to inspire and move people, to evoke atmospheres and emotions by means of perfectly staged events. Sound interesting? Then you’ve just taken the first step to a successful future as an event engineer. Just enrol now, then it’s lights on – and the show can begin!
