Founded in 1978, Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) prides itself on interdisciplinary research and innovation, with first-class teaching and project-based learning lying at the heart of the university.
Engineering is a main focus of TUHH, with degree courses ranging from more 'traditional' engineering degrees (such as civil and environmental engineering) to areas such as process and bioprocess engineering. Other courses include logistics & mobility and techno-mathematics. This wide range of degree options with a practice-based focus makes TUHH a top technical university in Germany. The campus in the south of the city is a hub for innovative learning, with links to many influential businesses and companies.
Tuition fees and entry
Like many other universities and academies, TUHH doesn't charge tuition fees. This, combined with the availability of degrees taught in English, makes it an attractive university for many international students. However, many courses are also taught in German, and it is expected that students have an intermediate level of German in order to study at TUHH. Therefore, TUHH does offer some help to students learning German through both a variety of preliminary courses and regular courses conducted during the semester.
Three areas of particular interest at TUHH are green technologies, life science technologies, and aviation and maritime systems. In an important industrial port such as Hamburg, research is woven in with practical learning situations for targeted solutions. To further their status as a top research institution, the TUHH created the Graduate Academy for Technology and Innovation in 2013 aimed at supporting early stage researchers, and thus supporting the growth of TUHH innovation.
