HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU)
The current and future social challenges in cities and regions require new scientific perspectives. HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU) has a unique profile as a university for architecture and metropolitan development: it combines all aspects of construction and urban development in design, engineering and natural sciences as well as the humanities and social sciences under one roof. The scientists of HCU Hamburg have a high level of expertise in their own specialised field, while at the same time systematically crossing disciplinary boundaries and entering into a variety of cooperative ventures. At HCU Hamburg, openness to neighbouring disciplines is already conveyed during the course of studies. Thus the young university develops innovative solutions in research and teaching, so that the built environment develops today and in the future worth living and lastingly.
