Information for your Course of Studies, B.Sc. / M.Sc.

Statutes, Regulations, Curriculum

  • General Regulations, Examination Regulations and Curriculum, which were valid at the beginning of your studies, stay valid but may be object to updates. Automatic transition to more recent curricula or regulations will not occur.


  • Examination Registration:
    • Register for exams here: Self Service (TUNE)
    • Consider the deadlines for registration
    • For repitition of failed exams, you are automatically enroled
    • When you register for an exam but do not sign off until the deadline, you have to pass this exam, even if it is an elective subject course
  • For appeals against exams, recognition of credits or other topics regarding exams are decided by the Examination Boards. Our representatives can be viewed here: Committee Work.
  • If you have questions or problems, feel free to contact us.


  • At some point in your studies, you will need some Forms from the Examination Office
  • Application forms for Bachelor-/Master-Thesis, your ECTS overview, certificate of study and similar documents are found in Self Service (TUNE)



  • ECTS: “European Credit Transfer System”
  • ECTS credit points are used to estimate and compare workload for lectures/courses including preparation for their exams. One credit amounts to about 30 hours of work.
  • The grades for courses are weighted with their ECTS points to calculate the final grade of your studies - the more credit points a course has, the higher the influence on the final grade.
  • As a standard, when collecting 30 credit points per semester, the studies will be finished in the scheduled time (ger.: Regelstudienzeit). Yet, it is obligatory to complete the studies in double the amount of the Regelstudienzeit.
  • At the TUHH, bachelor studies are allocated 180 ECTS while master studies are allocated 120 ECTS points.

Recognition of achievements

If you have already taken exams at another university or similar institution, you may be able to have them recognized for your future studies at the TUHH. Important! As with all applications, please pay attention to the deadlines. You can find detailed information in the “General Study and Examination Regulations” (ASPO) in §11 “Recognition of study, examination and other achievements”.

The ASPO can be found here.



How to get a topic for a bachelor's, master's or other thesis depends on the institute you are interested in. Essentially, however, there are the following possibilities:

  • Announcement: Some topics are announced (institute homepage, bulletin board, TalkING, or similar). In this case you will find all necessary information directly in the announcement.
  • Application: You can also simply ask professors or PhD students whose research area interests you whether a topic is currently available. It is usually helpful if you explain which area you are interested in and what you have done in this field during your studies. The lead time of the request depends again strongly on the institute. For example, you could inquire two months before the desired start date.

There is also the possibility to think of a topic yourself and to look for a supervising professor. However, this is very unusual and the success is uncertain.

If you want to write your thesis in cooperation with a company, you should start looking for a supervising professor early on. Experience has shown that most students find an institute in the end, but the search is often more time-consuming. It is helpful to already have a relatively precise description of the topic. Also, the search will be easier the clearer the scientific aspect of the thesis is.

Info events about the Master's program

  • Every winter semester a lecture series is held in which the individual institutes of the Dean's Office for Electrical Engineering, Computer Science & Mathematics introduce themselves one after the other. This serves the purpose that students can inform themselves about bachelor theses and master deepenings.
