  • Special features regarding teaching
    Mobility is our passion. The aim of the training in the department is to enable students to independently apply scientific and practically oriented methods in the development and design of road and rail vehicles, as well as aircraft. The following are integrated: the Laboratories for Aerodynamics, Acoustics, CAD, Lightweight Construction as well as the Vehicle Laboratory, Flight Laboratory with flight simulator, Aircraft System Laboratory and the Laboratory for Cabins and Cabin Systems, in which – in addition to teaching – practically oriented research and development work is carried out. http://www.haw-hamburg.de/ti-ff/unser-department.html
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    Students who want to study abroad can find all of the important information on our websiteS http://www.haw-hamburg.de/ti-ff/international.html and https://www.haw-hamburg.de/ti-ff/international.html. The department of Vehicle Engineering and Aircraft Construction also offers English-language modules in both degree courses. It also supports cooperative doctorates with partner universities in Great Britain and Spain. Modules for improving foreign language skills can also be incorporated into the curriculum.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    University of Hertfordshire, Hatfield, UK; Linköpings Universitet, Linköping, Schweden; Ecole Superieur des Techniques (ESTACA), Paris, Frankreich; University of Limerick, Limerick, Irland; Tampere University of Applied Science, Tampere, Finnland; Warsaw University of Technology, Warschau, Polen; UPC Barcelona, Barcelona, Spanien; Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, USA; Curtin University, Perth, Australien; ITESM, Mexiko
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The Automotive and Aeronautical Engineering department has well-equipped laboratories for all specialist disciplines, including mechatronics for teaching, research and state-of-the-art transfer. Highlights include the Laboratory for Cabins and Cabin Systems in the Hamburg Centre of Aviation Training (HCAT) that emerged as part of the BMBF Cluster of Excellence competition as well as the Laboratory for Acoustics currently being constructed with funding from the faculty of Technology and Computer Science. The Centre for Applied Aviation Research (ZAL) complements the infrastructure. http://www.haw-hamburg.de/ti-ff/labore.html.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    The department represented in ongoing research projects in Vehicle and Aircraft Construction. In Vehicle Construction, research is conducted on new vehicle and mobility concepts beyond the limits of the department. Research in aircraft construction is carried out in the affiliated laboratories, the Hamburg Centre of Aviation Training and the Centre for Applied Aviation Research. The CCNF (http://www.haw-hamburg.de/ccnf/forschung.html) bundles university-wide activities and assumes responsibility for coordination. We have successfully acquired projects in national aviation research programmes (Lufo).
  • Support for founders
    The Automotive Engineering and Aircraft Construction department uses the general services of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences as part of its career service. It offers workshops and advice on the transition from university to work.
  • Other special features
    The students in the department of Vehicle Engineering and Aircraft Construction have been supported by the Wagenbauschule funding association for 50 years. Aims: Support for teaching in the department of Vehicle Engineering and Aircraft Construction of the HAW Hamburg, promoting outstanding subject-specific projects in teaching and research, encouraging the exchange of information between the department and industry, providing former students with a discussion and communication forum, fostering international contacts and the PR work of the department (see http://www.haw-hamburg.de/ti-ff/unser-department/foerderung/wagenbauschule.html)
