Here the focus is on practical teaching and application-oriented research in close exchange with business and society.

The HAWK is a state university in Lower Saxony with more than 6,000 students. The university is regionally anchored and maintains excellent networks throughout Germany and the world. Its roots, which date back to the 19th century in Holzminden, for example, are where it all started.

Since its official foundation as a technical college (today a university of applied sciences and arts) in 1971, the HAWK has always kept up with the times. The 48 study programmes at the university are a good example of this. Their contents, practical relevance and teaching methods reflect what is expected in the professional fields today and in the future. In addition to the classic full-time degree programmes with Bachelor's and Master's degrees, part-time and dual degree programmes as well as continuing education programmes are an established part of the curriculum. As a result, lifelong learning is not just a goal, but remains a practice lived day to day.
