Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH)Hamburg
With the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg‘s ambition to further develop the location into a knowledge metropolis, the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) is expanding its expertise in research and teaching. With its growth concept the TUHH aims to enhance its position as a leading interdisciplinary, innovative, and international university of technology in Germany. It aspires to consolidate and extend the characteristic that has constantly been its hallmark since its foundation: that of being a model university, an initiator and an innovation driver.
The TUHH is a modern, dynamic, internationally aligned university with high performance and quality standards. The main focus of research, teaching and technology transfer is to develop technology for people.
High-ranking research, especially in the three competence areas of Green Technologies, Life Science Technologies and Aviation and Maritime Systems, characterize the TUHH.
Along with engineering competences the TUHH links interdisciplinary research with digitization and development of new materials.
In teaching we are planning to develop new, internationally focused courses of study for engineering scientists of tomorrow. In the use of modern teaching and learning methods the TUHH continues to aspire to a leading position in high-quality teaching. Last not least, targeted promotion of technology transfer and company startups is another distinctive feature of the TUHH.
Implementation of the TUHH's growth concept is combined with a strategy that includes closer networking with scientific institutions in the Hamburg metropolitan region, the development of new, cross-disciplinary research associations, maximum excellence in basic research and strong ties with industrial partners in application-oriented research.
