Information and Counseling Services for Prospective Students

The TUHH stages several information events each year for prospective students. Each event has a different main focus and alignment.

Taster Days (Schnupperstudium) - ONLINE


The next Taster Days will probably take place in February 2022

We would like to give you a foretaste of TUHH. Are you interested to find out what industrial engineers or civil engineers are doing? What expertise they need, in which companies they work and what their work routine looks like? Would you like to have interesting insights in companies in industry, aviation or the technology sector? You can find all this and further information about studying at TUHH in our taster days (Schnupperstudium).

You can find the program from the taster days 2021 as pdf-file here.
