First year students at the TUHH get the chance to engage in practical engineering right at the beginning of their studies. The Interdisciplinary Bachelor-Project (IDP) offers the chance to tackle a complete developing process. Students start with the initial conceptualization of the project all the way to the actual construction of a prototype. Alongside their foundation courses students gain first experiences in project management and working in interdisciplinary teams with fellow students registered for varied degree courses. At the student’s workshop students are facilitated with technical devices and support to practically realise their own ideas.
The experiences made during their time at the Interdisciplinary Bachelor-Project motivate students to look into technical details as well as thinking about their responsibility as future engineers in greater depth.
The Center for Teaching and Learning (ZLL), accountable for the IDP, constantly develops the concept of the IDP in order to stay innovative and to develop future teaching formats for the TUHH.
