It consists of five faculties at four locations within the city area.

Warum gerade Sie – und nicht ganz einfach du?

Vielleicht ist es Ihnen schon aufgefallen: Wir haben uns dafür entschieden, in allen Informationen auf dieser Website die Sie-Form zu verwenden. Nicht weil wir uns betont unlocker und distanziert geben wollen, sondern aus Respekt Ihnen gegenüber. Denn Sie sind ein erwachsener Mensch – und wir kein unmögliches Möbelhaus aus Schweden.


Our self-image

Respectful, appreciative interaction with each other - whether addressing you formally or informally - comes natural to us. We promote diversity, exchange and cultural variety and strictly oppose all forms of discrimination and disadvantage on the basis of ethnic origin, gender, sexual identity, religion and world view, age and disability.

Courses of Faculty I

Dry theory lectures in overcrowded lecture halls? – No way! All courses offered by Faculty I focus on practical relevance and application orientation. You will work and learn in small teams, and your lecturers will give plenty of their time to you. You will conduct your own experiments in modern, well-equipped laboratories, and the well-known industrial companies in the region will offer you the opportunity to deepen your practical experience. The Faculty cooperates closely with a total of 16 international partner universities - the best prerequisites for a semester abroad. And for a successful start, we offer free bridge courses in mathematics and physics as well as personal mentoring in the 1st semester.

Sounds good? – Select your degree course.

Life in Hanover

Hanover, the capital of Lower Saxony, is a large city surrounded by greenery. There are opportunities for leisure activities and local recreation everywhere in the Eilenriede city forest, in the numerous city parks, on the banks of the Leine and Ihme rivers and also at the Maschsee lake in the middle of Hanover. The official Hanover Portal offers good initial orientation and lots of valuable information.


Neighbourhoods such as Linden, Nordstadt, Limmer and Südstadt are particularly popular with many students. Shared flats and single flats in these neighbourhoods are in high demand. You can obviously also live in the midst of life in one of the sixteen residential buildings of the Studentenwerk (Student Services Association) Hanover.

Travelling by bus and train

The rail and bus network in Hanover is very well-developed. With the Semesterticket (semester ticket), a function of the CampusCard, you can use all routes within all tariff zones of the Greater Hanover area (suburban trains, buses) and almost all local trains in Lower Saxony and Bremen.

BAföG (Federal Educational Assistance Act)

The Studentenwerk Hanover will gladly provide you with all information related to BAföG and Co. The BAföG officer at the Hochschule Hannover (Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts) is also easy to contact and will answer any questions you may have on the subject.
