Scholarship and Grants



The profile of engineering higher education at TUHH focuses on research and application, including practical training in industry. It is characterised by features such as humanism, the Humboldt Principle of unity of research and teaching and a solid mathematical and scientific foundation. The base of knowledge covers a wide range, and priority is given to knowledge of methodology as opposed to the mere repetition of knowledge. This allows quick adaption to new fields of technology and new branches of employment. Solid and comprehensive education leads to the qualification and personality for a promising professional or academic career.

Process Engineering is a comprehensive approach to inventing, designing, optimising and operating processes for human needs, involving all processes wherein substances are handled and changed. Process Engineering comprises the physical, chemical and biological processing of substances to modify their nature, their properties or the composition of mixtures in order to produce useful products. The Master's programme provides the possibility of incorporating modern techniques essential for future production processes, like biotechnology, environmental technology and modern energy technology into the fundamental expertise of physical and chemical processing.

The standard duration of the course is two years. In the first year students take part in lectures, exercises and laboratory work. During the lecture-free period after the second semester an internship takes place, followed by a project and a subject-specific seminar or a process design course in the third semester. The course is completed with a six-month Master's thesis in the fourth semester.

The technological challenges of modern society and the requirements of the globalised labour market call for an excellent engineering education as well as for a sound additional qualification in the fields of business and management, soft skills, and humanities. Therefore, the international Master's degree courses at TUHH include a minimum number of non-technical compulsory elective courses.
