Scientific networks in teaching and research

Science thrives on exchange, especially across subject boundaries and disciplines.

Our scientists cooperate in numerous projects with excellent colleagues in Germany and around the world, whether in individual projects or in joint projects with partners from science and industry.

The Hamburg University of Technology works closely with the other universities in Hamburg, runs joint degree programs and is a sought-after partner for engineering innovations.

Our students benefit from an active network with over 70 partner universities.
