Information for Tutors

What role do tutors play?

During the 2024/25 winter semester, you will lead a group of first-semester students studying one of the following the degree programmes on a weekly basis:

  • Allgemeine Ingenieurwissenschaften
  • Bau- und Umweltingenieurwesen
  • Chemie- und Bioingenieurwesen
  • Computer Science
  • Data Science
  • Elektrotechnik
  • Engineering Science
  • Green Technologies: Energie, Wasser, Klima
  • Informatik-Ingenieurwesen
  • Maschinenbau
  • Mechatronik
  • Schiffbau
  • Technomathematik
  • Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen mit Schwerpunkt Logistik und Mobilität

Working as a team, two tutors will lead a group of max. 25 first-semester students. You are tasked with managing the group with a mind to helping people to help themselves, preparing the sessions (both in terms of content and didactics), and making your own study experiences relevant to others.

By undertaking intensive training and through supervision, you will be suitably qualified for the role. Topics include: Group leadership, facilitating discussion, reflecting on your own learning and study behaviour, organising and planning tutorials, training and reflecting on your own group leadership and discussion skills.

Why become a tutor?

In addition to receiving an appropriate salary – please see below – acting as a tutor provides excellent training for gaining group leadership, facilitation and presentation experience, acquiring knowledge and experience of communication and group processes and, among other things, gaining clarity about your personal study strategies/motivation. Many tutors also report that it is an interesting and pleasant change from their TUHH studies. At the end of the semester, you will receive a certificate to mark your tutorship.

Salary and contract at a glance:

Normal (1 Tutorial) 373,80 € gross per month from 1.10.24 to 31.1.25 for 2,5 SWS (equivalent to approx. 6 hrs/week)

Double (2 Tutorials) 448,56€ gross per month from 1.10.24 to 28.2.25 for 3 SWS

Who can become a Tutor?

Students from the 3rd semester upwards who have achieved an appropriate level in their studies, are interested, want to and have the time to get involved in a job with a difference at TUHH. The tutor pairings will preferably consist of students in different semesters.

Being committed and willing to reflect are both prerequisites for the role. In addition, you must be available on the mandatory training dates, for the tutor meetings and for the kick-off event (see training dates for the individual degree programs) and also have a certain amount of flexibility in your timetable – after all, there are three timetables to coordinate: two tutors and the first-semester students.

Please be aware, that the training will be held in German.
