The TUHH is a young and dynamic technical university with around 100 professors and 7,800 students. It is anchored in excellent basic and applied research and thus radiates into the Hamburg metropolitan region and beyond.
In many national and international research networks, our scientists create the basis for answers to technological and social challenges with new basic knowledge, or contribute directly to new solutions with engineering applications.
Based on the realisation that innovations and new approaches to solutions often emerge at the boundary between disciplines, the research structure of TUHH is designed to promote interdisciplinary cooperation among scientists. For this reason, the structure is not dictated by faculties or departments, but instead research is organised into five research fields. The research fields address important scientific, social and particularly relevant topics for Hamburg.
Within these research fields, further substructures support a lively and differentiated research environment.
The TUHH sees itself as an engine of innovation. It actively promotes dialogue between companies and scientists, especially in the Hamburg metropolitan region. Knowledge transfer to industry, business and civil society are important elements in TUHH's actions, as is the support of start-ups. Long-established institutions and structures such as Tutech Innovation GmbH, the Startup Dock, Hamburg Open Science just to mention some, support these endeavours.
