Hamburg University of Technology - TUHH (Hamburg, Germany)
The TUHH is one of Germany’s youngest and most successful universities. Plans for a university of technology in the Süderelbe area of Hamburg go back to the 1920s. Fifty years later, in 1978, the Hamburg University of Technology came into being, its mission to promote structural change in the region.
Now, the TUHH has around 100 professors and 1,150 employees (including 500 academic staff, inclusive of those with salaries from third-party funding). With around 5,000 students, this makes for an excellent staff-student ratio. There is plenty of space on campus for encounters and fruitful exchanges of ideas. The atmosphere is easy to describe – young, innovative, unconventional, original and creative, an ideal atmosphere for developing new ideas in engineering sciences.
The founding principles of the TUHH are unique in Germany. The priority of research, an interdisciplinary approach, innovation, regionalism and internationalism are the obligatory foundations for what we do. Research, teaching and technology transfer are centered around the guiding theme of developing technology for people.
TUHH contributes with knowledge and experience in blended learning activities, a focus point in the ZLL center. Internationality is one of the guiding principles of TUHH, and further collaboration and exchange with partner universities are being planned by the TUHH, and supported by Colibri.
