  • Special features regarding the equipment
    TUHH, founded as the most northerly technical university in Germany, is one of the most innovative and modern universities of the Federal Republic of Germany. Since its founding in 1978, TUHH has pursued future-oriented approaches in research, teaching and technology transfer. TUHH is a campus university where everything is close together enabling fast access to facilities. It has a modern, well-equipped computer centre, an up-to-date library and a whole series of learning spaces which are only available to students. Some of the courses are project based.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    In the Computer Science department intensive research is carried out in the fields of Bioinformatics, Image Processing, Embedded Systems, Intelligent Systems, IT Security, Medical Technology Systems, Software Engineering and Telematics. These areas are accompanied on the part of Mathematics and Engineering Sciences by the following fields: Discrete Mathematics, Semiconductor Technology, Communication Networks, Microsystems Technology, Communications Engineering, Numerics, Optimisation, Closed-Loop Control, Robotics and Reliable Computing. The research work is financially supported by DFG, BMBF, industry and others.
  • Support for founders
    The Technical University of Hamburg is one of the universities that qualified in the BMWi competition "EXIST-Gründungskultur - Die Gründerhochschule". Among other things, it operates the start-up dock, which supports students interested in starting a business with various measures.
  • Other special features
    IIW freshmen are required to complete a 10-week work-related internship, while it is not mandatory for CS freshmen. In CS a software internship of 6 weeks (6 ECTS) is required, which can be combined with the bachelor thesis. A limited number of dual study places are available for the CS and IIW courses. The operational part is carried out in companies in the Hamburg metropolitan region. In computer science in Hamburg, a cross-university platform for cooperation is currently being created through "ahoi.digital".
