Application Procedure & Selection
To apply for the Bachelor's program in Information Engineering, please follow the online application process.
In order to study at HAW Hamburg, you need to have an academic qualification that is comparable to the German Abitur or Fachhochschulreife. This is your higher education entrance qualification.
Unfortunately, HAW Hamburg cannot check your certificates and tell you if they will enable you to begin a Bachelor's degree course at HAW Hamburg. The organization uni-assist carries out this assessment and generates the so-called 'preliminary review documentation' or VPD. You submit this with your application.
Applicants who completed their education outside of the EU must include the uni-assist preliminary review documentation (VPD) to their application.
The VPD is a check of how your documents compare to the equivalents in the German system.
Send officially certified copies of your certificates to uni-assist at least 6 weeks before the application deadline.
Curriculum vitae in tabular form
Seojeong comes from South Korea and is studying in her senior year in the Information Engineering Bachelor's degree program. We asked her why she chose to study in Hamburg and why Information Engineering. She also talks about her favorite subjects and what she likes about Hamburg. You can read about it here.
I love the combination of electrical engineering and computer science in the information engineering program. By combining both of these areas you are maximizing the potential areas of employment, which is pretty cool. You can read more about it here.
Why did you decide to study in Germany? Germany is rated 3rd behind the USA and UK as the favorite destination for international students. German education is free as opposed to the other two countries listed above. So for me, it was a no brainer, Germany was the place to study. You can read more about it here.
