Engineering Science

The B.Sc. in Engineering Science (ES) is an especially wide-ranging and demanding study program, where most lectures are in English. The basics of all branches of engineering are taught unabridged in the lectures of the study programs in question. By attending lectures in the different areas of engineering, students will be familiarized with the language and concepts of the different engineering disciplines. In spite of the extensive basic education, subject-specific knowledge is not dispensed with.

Next to mandatory engineering-specific lectures TUHH offers optional German language courses, which shall make it easier for international students to take an active part in social life alongside their studies. At the same time study program participants from Germany are encouraged to attend TUHH’s foreign language courses in order to be well prepared for the international employment and educational market.

Course Structure

Engineering Science is an especially wide-ranging and demanding study program. After two years, students opt for one of four specializations:

•    Electrical Engineering

•    Mechanical Engineering

•    Mechatronics

•    Medical Engineering

Preparation for Work and Master’s Degree

ES students concentrate on engineering basics and their permanently valid physical and mathematical laws and methods. They will thus become aware of connections between electrical engineering, process engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering and civil engineering. By means of this cross-disciplinary knowledge they are able them to develop solutions to interdisciplinary problems. This basic interdisciplinary knowledge enables ES students to work their way into new areas fast, to mediate between engineering disciplines, and to keep pace with a constantly changing working environment. Their subsequent career options are correspondingly wide-ranging.

ES graduates are especially in demand in industrial sectors where cross-disciplinary knowledge is required, such as in medical engineering, mechatronics, or energy technology. Alternatively, after taking their B.Sc., students with suitable specializations can go on to study national and international Master’s programs for a further three semesters for a further qualification. They can also study for a regular M.Sc. at the TUHH. If they opt for a four-semester Master’s program all four semesters at the TUHH will qualify for a BAföG student loan in spite of the seven semesters spent studying for the B.Sc. at the TUHH.

Ever since it was launched in 1994 this international Bachelor’s study program at the TUHH has attracted high achievers from across Germany and other countries to study in Hamburg
