The following students were awarded a prize for their outstanding master's thesis


Qi Deng from China, MBA, Festo Prize 2018

Sebastian Rayon Nixon Ravikumar from India, ASM, Festo Prize 2018

"I feel elated to have received this award for my thesis and academics. My heartfelt thanks to Hochschule Esslingen and Festo for recognizing my work. And to all I would say - Anything you do, do it with passion and if the person inside you says that you have achieved, there is no more recognition than that."

Jorge Mario Patino Taborda from Colombia, DDM, Festo Prize 2018

"I never thought that having the fortune to be part of DDM in Hochschule Esslingen would come with such a huge challenge, neither that overcoming it was going to be so unbelievably well paid. Winning the FESTO Prize made it clear for me: hard work always pays off!"

Madhavan Gopalan from India, ASM, Bosch Prize 2018

“I chose Hochschule Esslingen after 4 years of professional career to enhance my knowledge in the automotive field. The course was above my expectations in both practical and theoretical scenarios. But the international atmosphere in the course stood out for me. It has made me more mature and taught me to reinvent the work/study culture itself. The Bosch prize is an additional cherry on the top of wonderful days I spent in Esslingen.”


"This academic experience is a great advantage from the intercultural point of view and of course also in the professional career to get a better job in international areas. But beyond the certificates, technical knowledge and new soft skills obtained, this experience has taught me the wealth that exists in international teams with people coming from different countries and contexts, tolerance and the ability to learn from other perspectives are skills that I will use in my professional and personal life in the future."


Mariusz Francik from Poland, ASM, Festo Prize 2017

"The hard work had its surprising results. It was a great honour not only to graduate from the widely known Hochschule Esslingen but also to be distinguished with the award from the FESTO AG. Nobody could dream of a better start into the professional career."
