University - The Particular

The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Hildesheim/Holzminden/Göttingen (HAWK) is diverse, lively and human. Anonymous mass degree programmes can be found elsewhere, but not here. We prepare you for an optimal start in many interesting professional fields by offering a modern and innovative range of courses. In addition to compulsory seminars, the University offers numerous optional courses and a diverse range of interdisciplinary classes.

Study Programme - Main Focus

HAWK also offers a wide range of study options in structural, creative and social fields, as well as in scientific, technical and business fields. All degree programmes are based on a high level of real-world practice and seminars. Lecturer-centred approaches are the exception, rather than the rule. We also attach great importance to projects that cross discipline boundaries.

Background - The Insight

Though officially founded in 1971, HAWK and its predecessor institutions can look back on a much longer history. The Holzminden site, for instance, has accommodated students for more than 180 years. Old knowledge and tradition, infused with state-of-the-art course content, adds a special touch to studying at HAWK.

What's special here?

Doing scientific projects and having fun is not a contradiction. Every two years, HAWK organises the cordless drill race. University teams from all over the world meet in Hildesheim to show off vehicles they have built. What makes this so special is that all these vehicles must power themselves and the pilot over the race course using only a commercial cordless drill as a drive.
