At the interface of engineering and economics, our Institute carries on application-oriented research and teaching in the areas of logistics, supply chain management and business management. Our goal is to develop scientifically founded and practically realizable concepts through interdisciplinary research cooperations, as well as through intense collaboration and networking with manufacturing enterprises and service providers.
Based on our long term expertise in research and teaching, we offer the following services and opportunities for cooperation:
Transferring methods and knowledge through workshops, discussion panels and conferences
Implementing modern concepts in management through working-groups
Conducting national and international scientific studies
Handling of sophisticated industry projects
Building-up competence networks for research and industry
In-house training, consulting and benchmarking
In addition, our institute is part of the Production Management Section of the German Academic Association for Business Research (VHB). We are also a member of the university’s group for labour and management organization (HAB). Furthermore, we actively contribute to the German Federation of Industrial Research Associations (AIF), to the German Association for Materials Management, Purchasing and Logistics (BME) as well as participate in the Logistics Initiative Hamburg and the German Logistics Association (BVL).
We offer application-oriented and scientifically founded lessons based on the latest findings in research and practice. Our goal is to prepare graduates for the subsequent acquisition of management positions in logistics, manufacturing and order processing. Our graduates are qualified for both the fulfilment of technical and managerial tasks in manufacturing as well as in service companies.
In order to successfully prepare our graduates for their future careers, the institute strives for a leadership position in the application of modern teaching methods. In addition to lectures and seminars, we convey the contents of our lectures through case studies, interactive business games, problem and project based learning concepts, and through a modern E-learning platform which integrates practical tasks to ensure the learning success.
Our lectures are held in German or English. They are addressed to all students of Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) (especially to those enrolled in the study courses logistics and mobility (LUM) (B.Sc.), logistics, infrastructure and mobility (LIM) (M.Sc.) and international industrial engineering (IWI) (M.Sc.)), to the students of the collaborative industrial engineering study program (HWI) and also to students of the Northern Institute of Technology Management (NIT).
