Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg) is one of the largest of its kind in Germany and within our four faculties we offer a wide range of Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes in engineering, IT, life sciences, design and media as well as business and social sciences. In teaching we focus on applied sciences, giving our students a practical insight into their fields of study through projects, lab work, internships and theses in industry.

Our fields of expertise reflect the technologies, industries and services that make Germany a leading economy and our close collaboration with Hamburg's innovation clusters allows us to develop this knowledge in our teaching and research. Our expertise is drawn from faculty members, who have worked in industry before joining the university. In research we are an important partner for the city of Hamburg’s companies and innovation clusters, developing new ideas from the synergies of this dynamic location.
