Support for foundersAll Bachelor’s students must take an entrepreneurship/start-up project as part of a team and with mentors. The subject of entrepreneurship can be consolidated further in six modules. All modules are based on a project/problem-based approach, with students implementing their own ideas in teams. The contents to be worked on are guided by the specifications by the BMWi regarding EXIST entrepreneurship grants. There are extensive extracurricular offers to stimulate and promote prospective entrepreneurs, e.g. entrepreneurship consulting/support, Founder Talks, summer schools, workshops.

If a student provides a medical certificate proving that he or she is not able to take exams in the prescribed format, partially or in full, the chair of the exam committee can approve alternative yet equivalent exam formats or grant time extensions.
Characteristics of diversity advancementWomen's advancement plan: Equal opportunities, flexible working conditions, improved opportunities for advancement; “Pro Exzellenzia – Hamburg Universities for Women”: Scholarships, coaching, interdisciplinary continuing education; "Family-friendly university" certificate; Flexible child care “CampusNest”; Parent-child study rooms; Family Office: Advice on "children" and "caring for relatives"; Annual summer festival: Various nationalities, working groups, volunteer groups and initiatives, etc. present themselves.
Other special featuresThe TUHH offers theoretically demanding and methodologically sophisticated studies. The close connection of the studies, teaching and research with Hamburg’s cluster policy (e.g. logistics, maritime industry, aviation, etc.) and the tight network of the Dean of Students with partners from business and industry promote a highly international and practical curriculum that focuses on industry challenges through a strong foundation in theory.
