The Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) again occupies top positions in engineering sciences in the most up-to-date CHE university ranking. The Master's programs in Civil Engineering and Electrical Engineering scored extremely well, have an international student-body, and can be completed within a reasonable time frame. The Master's degree in Mechatronics is also a stand-out, due to its international orientation. Biotechnology and process engineering also received high marks due to the level of support at the beginning of the program, the international nature of the work, and the contact to professional opportunities during the bachelor's program.  

"The TUHH is continuously improving its rankings. We work constantly on the consistently high quality of teaching and research. We see our advantages particularly in the international orientation of our Master's programs and in the quality, intensive supervision of our first-year students. Rankings are a positive incentive to further profile the TUHH," said Ed Brinksma, President of the TUHH.

The CHE University Ranking

The results of the university ranking of the Centre for University Development (CHE) were published on May 7, 2019 in the new ZEIT Studienführer 2019/20. With over 150,000 students surveyed and more than 300 universities and universities of applied sciences surveyed, the ranking is the most comprehensive and detailed university comparison in German-speaking countries. This year, the subjects of English/American Studies, Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Biotechnology, Chemical Engineering/Applied Chemistry, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Energy Technology, Education, German Studies, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Physical Engineering, Psychology, Romance Studies, Environmental Technology, Process Engineering, and Materials Engineering/Materials Science were examined. 

The ranking is based on the overall study experience, graduation within a reasonable time, contact with professional practice, available research funds, equipment, and international orientation. In addition to facts on studies, teaching and research, the ranking also includes assessments by individual students of the study conditions at the universities. The ranking is now also available on ZEIT CAMPUS ONLINE.

TUHH & NIT: The Best of Science and Practice

The NIT is a private institute of higher education and was founded in 1998 by 40 professors of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) as a non-profit, limited company with the aim of preparing young talents for the challenges of the digital world. In the Master's program in Technology Management, international students acquire an extensive technical understanding and solid management knowledge through applied business projects. The study program can be completed as a master´s degree or as a double master´s degree (degree: M.A. or MBA) in combination with a Master's program in engineering sciences at the TUHH. The degree is awarded by the TUHH.
