Projects for completion of Bachelor or Master Thesis are usually carried out at the TUHH or with co- (supervision) of an external institution/company. The supervising TUHH professor defines the required documentation and presentation of the student´s project.
The first step to start the procedure is to contact the relevant supervising professor directly in one of the TUHH Research Institutes according to your research subject.
Students coming to TUHH from ERASMUS partner universities, are regular interns at departments of TUHH – with the exception that they receive a grant from their home university through the ERASMUS student mobility for traineeship programme (SMP or SMT).
No bilateral ERASMUS agreement is needed.
ERASMUS traineeship (SMP/SMT) is not to be confused with ERASMUS student mobility for studies (SMS), also called ERASMUS student exchange.
Students coming from the above partner institutions are regular student research assistants at the TUHH Institute and will be registered as exchange students. The Research Institute will provide information and assist you with your application and registration procedure.
Please contact MUM Institute /Prof R. Seifried/ Email: robert.seifried(at)tuhh.de
or exchange coordinator Prof. Dücker/Email: daniel.duecker(at)tuhh.de
