Special features regarding teaching

Industrial Engineering degree course (HWI Hamburg) is academic and "cross-university" in nature. It uniquely combines the excellent economic expertise of university research with the outstanding practical networking of the engineering disciplines at the HAW HH and the HSU. Students experience these three different university cultures in their Bachelor's and Master's degrees.

Special features regarding the international orientation

Due to the cross-university nature of the degree courses, students are offered twice the number of international contacts (partner universities and university collaborations) and can thus enhance their international skills.
