Special features regarding teachingModern forms of teaching and learning such as problem and project-based learning, where specific tasks and projects are worked on in small groups and teams; research or application-oriented project seminars; interdisciplinary Master theses with intensive, individual supervision (partly in cooperation with practice); high international orientation due to mandatory foreign language (English speaking) teaching as well as internationally oriented learning content in the MSc-IWI; implemented mobility window for optional stay abroad at a partner university.
Special features regarding the international orientationMany partner universities in Europe and beyond. In the 5th (Bachelor’s) and/or 3rd (Master’s) semester does not contain any compulsory courses, giving students a chance to organise their semester abroad (“mobility window”). Credits obtained abroad are recognised on the basis of individual learning agreements by the professorial ERASMUS representative in conjunction with the respective course coordinators. The International Office of the TUHH and contacts in the Dean’s Office are available to answer questions on organisation and finances.
Exchange universities for stay abroadsUniversity of Newcastle, Australien; University of Waterloo, Kanada; Tokyo Tech, Japan; Tec de Monterrey, Mexiko; Nanyang Technical University, Singapur; Danmarks Tekniske Universitet, Dänemark; Politecnico di Milano, Italien; Mahidol University, Thailand; Aalto Universität, Finnland; Chalmers University of Technology, Schweden.
Special features regarding the equipmentThe Engineering institutes have highly modern laboratory equipment available to the students to use for their work. Examples include a "model factory" in which production processes can be planned in detail; modern simulation technology in maritime logistics; learning laboratory with the latest technical equipment for business games and interactive group meetings based on the problem-based learning concept; technical logistics: Research centre in cooperation with Jungheinrich AG for practical laboratory experiments, factory planning, intra-logistics and logistic networking.
Special features regarding research activitiesKey areas in research include, above all, Logistics and Mobility as well as Technology and Innovation Management. Students can specialise in these early on, but also in other fields of Business Administration (e.g. Marketing, Controlling, Operations Research, etc.) and Engineering Sciences (depending on the chosen specialism e.g. Process Engineering and Biotechnology, Civil Engineering, Energy Engineering, Environmental Engineering and many more), in the form of supplementary projects, project seminars and Master's theses on current research activities.
Support for foundersAll Bachelor students take part in an entrepreneurship / startup project or complete a business simulation game in a team and with mentors. In addition, the topic of Start-ups can be deepened in 6 modules. All modules are based on a project-based approach, in which students implement their own ideas in teams. The content is based on the BMWi guidelines for receiving an EXIST start-up grant. There are extensive extracurricular offers to stimulate and promote prospective entrepreneurs, e.g. entrepreneurship consulting/support, Founder Talks, summer schools, workshops.
Other special featuresThe TUHH offers theoretically demanding and methodologically sophisticated studies. At the same time, the close connection between study, teaching and research with the Hamburg Cluster policy (e.g. Logistics, Maritime Economy, Aviation) and the strong network of the Dean's Office of cooperation partners from business and industry promote a very international and practice-oriented study, which is oriented to the challenges of the economy with a strong theoretical foundation. Social skills (e.g. teamwork) are also promoted comprehensively.
