Research-related teaching and learning through research

Practice demands it, it is useful for one’s own career, and from the point of view of educational and learning theory, it makes sense to learn to research and also to learn to research. Finally, students and graduates should contribute to solving urgent social issues from an engineering perspective. To this end, they participate in current research and development consciously, actively and as early as possible in its entire process. In this way they acquire research and occupationally relevant technical and personal skills. At the TUHH, students are actively involved in research and development projects in a variety of ways and research references are integrated in or alongside their studies.

As subject specialists at the ZLL, we are happy to advise and support you with your ideas for a sustainable integration of research-based teaching and research-based learning at the TUHH.
