Study Exchange Cooperations

The lists below show all TUHH partner universities with whom we hold bilateral agreements for student exchange. Exchange agreements can be agreed upon directly between 2 universities - as is the case with most overseas exchange cooperations - or within the scope of an exchange program which defines the rules for the exchange and may also include funding for the exchange students. That is the case with Erasmus+ student exchange cooperations.

Cooperations on UNIVERSITY LEVEL are all bilateral exchange agreements of TUHH that are ...

  • for all schools of study and thus for all courses of study at TUHH,
  • for several schools but not all,
    (e.g. only for the courses of study which belong to the school of civil engineering or the school of mechanical engineering)
  • for several specific courses of study of more than 1 school,
    (e.g. for 4 different courses of study, of which 2 belong one school of study and 2 to another school of study)

Cooperations on DEPARTMENTAL LEVEL are all bilateral exchange agreements of TUHH that are ...

  • for 1 single school of study and all the courses of study of that one school,
    (e.g. only for the school of civil engineering and all of its courses of study)
  • for 1 or more specific course of study of one specific school,
    (e.g. only for the courses of study 'shipbuilding' and 'ship- and offshore technology' which both belong to the school of electrical engineering)

Explanatory notes:

Abbreviations are used in the column for the school of study: B=school of civil engineering, V=school of process and chemical engineering, M=school of mechanical engineering, E=school of electrical engineering, computer science and mathematics, W=school of management sciences and technology, STBA=school of general engineering sciences.

Students are advised to find out which school their own course of study belongs to. AIW and GES students should go by the school of study which correlates to their specialization when looking for cooperations.

Erasmus cooperations

The list for Erasmus exchange places is currently being adapted to match the list format for overseas cooperations. Please, also consult the Erasmus student exchange brochure.

Agreements have to be renewed regulary, often every year. Please check the actual status of the agreement. The following list shows the universities where agreements with TUHH are in place for 2020/21 or where TUHH has asked for the prolongation of an existing agreement. An * indicates that the agreement is not yet in place (as of October 29th, 2019)

** Achtung: die Schweiz kann vorläufig nicht am ERASMUS-Programm teilnehmen, es sei denn sie setzt eigene Finanzmittel ein. Die ZHAW hat versichert, dass eine Finanzierung aus nationalen Mitteln möglich ist. Interessierte Studierende wenden sich bitte an den Deputy Dean International des Bauwesens.

*** At Bari it is also possible to apply just for thesis work. In that case TUHH outgoings would not apply through ERASMUS but direclty through the school.

+ Please note that depending on the Brexit negotiations exchange with the UK might be difficult. In the event of a no-deal Brexit we have got an agreement with Strathclyde university, who will continue exchanges under the same condition as under ERASMUS until the end of the academic year 2020/21. Funding will not be possible though in that case.
