The NIT curriculum comprises modules from the fields of classical management, self-development, innovation management, business start-ups and digitalization. These modules familiarize students with the entrepreneurial challenges of the future.
Topics such as ethics, law or IT security deepen further important aspects of technology management. On the basis of real projects, our students learn to apply relevant innovation methods such as design thinking in practice and can also learn programming in the optional module "Coding". In this way, they develop skills that are in demand in an agile, digitized working environment. The MyProject module is central to the technology management course at NIT. Here, students supervise an innovation project that can serve as the basis for a new business area.
As a civil engineer you deal with the design and planning, calculation and construction of buildings and their operation. In addition to a mobility semester the German-language master’s degree course in civil engineering at the TUHH includes practice- or research-oriented project work. You will specialize in either load-bearing structures, civil or port engineering and coastal protection. The choice is yours.
The German-language master’s degree course in bioprocess engineering at the TUHH is interdisciplinary in orientation and combines natural (especially biology and chemistry) and engineering sciences. To meet the rising global demand for the development of operation of biotech processes for the manufacture of essential everyday products bioprocess engineers with special biotech know-how are indispensable.
In the partly German-language master’s degree course in computer science you choose to specialize in either Computer and Software Engineering or Intelligence Engineering. You also acquire business and management skills. The master’s study program at the TUHH is international in orientation and that is why most of the lectures are held in English.
The German-language master’s degree course in electrical engineering prepares you for leading positions in the electrical engineering and information technology industries and for research work. In this TUHH study program you can choose between specializations such as information and communication technology or microsystems technology and nanoelectronics.
The aim of the German-language master’s degree course in energy and environmental engineering at the TUHH is to train students so that they are qualified in terms of process engineering to work on the solution of problems such as reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The study program also includes specializations in mechanical and process engineering and industrial internships.
The admission requirement for the German-language master’s degree course in energy systems at the TUHH is a BSc in mechanical or general engineering science (specializing energy technology). The main focus of the program is on the economically and ecologically sound provision of electricity, heating and refrigeration on the basis of conventional and renewable energy systems.
The German-language master’s degree course in aircraft systems engineering at the TUHH builds upon the BSc course in mechanical engineering. It is focused on acquiring the ability to think about and solve aircraft systems engineering issues by means of systems engineering and cross-systems approaches. The curriculum includes a number of in-depth engineering disciplines in aviation-specific areas.
The aim of the German-language master’s degree course in computer science and engineering at the TUHH is to learn how to analyze engineering and computer science problems independently using scientific methods to help solve them. Reference to currently relevant research and development projects makes the study program practical in orientation. You choose between three specializations: information and communication technology, systems technology – robotics and scientific calculation.
The German-language master’s degree course in logistics, infrastructure and mobility at the TUHH is interdisciplinary in orientation and combines engineering and economics. It offers a specialization in production and logistics and in transportation and mobility. The connection with logistics and transportation also opens up a wider range of career prospects.
The focus of the German-language master’s degree course in medical engineering is on acquiring specific engineering, medical and management competences for patient care. A wide range of specializations is available. The study program builds upon the BSc courses in general engineering science and mechanical engineering at the TUHH.
BSc graduates in both engineering and physics or chemistry can apply for admission to the German-language master’s degree course in materials science – multiscale material systems at the TUHH because the study program builds a bridge between the disciplines. Specializations include nano- and hybrid materials, technical materials, and material modeling. In your second year you deal with current research issues in a study project and your master’s thesis.
The German-language master’s degree course in product development, materials and production at the TUHH deals in greater depth on what BSc graduates in engineering, mathematics and science learn. Focal points are strategic product planning, systematic and methodical product development, and planning and control of production using modern production processes and high-performance materials.
The aim of the German-language master’s degree course in renewable energy at the TUHH is to teach the possibilities and limits to the provision of heating, electricity and fuel based on renewable energy from the Sun, geothermal heat and planetary gravitation and motion. You will also learn the basics of plant and systems technology, economics and ecology for making use of renewables.
The focus of the German-language master’s degree course in naval architecture and ocean engineering is on acquiring the knowledge and skills required to develop, design, calculate, and evaluate ship and ocean engineering design. In the TUHH program you can acquire a greater in-depth knowledge in sub-areas such as ship design, fluid dynamics, ship theory or marine engineering.
The German-language master’s degree course in theoretical mechanical engineering at the TUHH focuses on simulation technology and system dynamics. The program consists of a fundamental core area and an applied specialization. In the core area you learn about technical dynamics, control technology, numeric methods, and structural mechanics. You then specialized in an application-oriented area such as aircraft systems technology.
On the German-language master’s degree course in process engineering you undertake research into the physical, chemical and biological processes of material conversions. Studying process engineering at the TUHH aims to enable you to recognize and formulate laws by which apparatus, machines and entire production facilities can be planned, designed and operated. The product qualities required are to be achieved by means of safe and environmentally compatible processes.
The German-language degree course in water and environmental engineering offers you a choice of three specializations: urban water resources, urban environment management, or environmental and water resources management. A special feature of the study program at the TUHH is the third semester, which is a mobility semester that enables you to spend a semester abroad. The master’s program also includes practice- or research-oriented project work.
