Than come to Hamburg University of Applied Sciences Department of Automotive and Aeronautical Engineering!
This info pack was written especially for foreign student applicants with an interest in Aeronautical Engineering.
General important note: Although most lectures will be given in German, there are also many possibilities for students with only English language skills (see the info pack for details).
Foreign students have the option to study the Bachelor modules "Architecture of the Aircraft Cabin" and "Mechanical Aircraft Cabin Systems" as well as to complete a research project in this area in English. These modules are offered in the summer semester (March – July). The programme is a total of 16 ECTS credits with an overall workload of 510 hours.
You may consider to stay longer than just one semester and study towards a German Degree - the Bachelor or the Master.
We offer two different study majors in Aeronautical Engineering (and even more in Automotive Engineering):

Transcript of Records from Hamburg University of Applied Sciences
At the end of your stay you can obtain a "German Transcript of Records" from "Helios" (see above). Send a copy of this form to the International Office and ask for a translation towards an "International Transcript of Records". The transcript of records should show your courses, the amount of ECTS credits and your grades according to the ECTS. Ask to get your translated transcript of record signed.
Translation of Grades
The German grades that you receive originally will be translated into ECTS grades using the table below (as long as no other table exists). Your home institution will then translate the ECTS grades into grades according to your local grading scale. In this way you can get credit for the courses that you took in Hamburg.
