Become a ‘buddy’ for students from other parts of the world and support exchange students during their start at the Faculty of Nature and Engineering.
Maritime competence has a long tradition at the Hochschule Bremen; the roots of the university lie in the Bremen Navigation School founded in 1799. In 1895, the Seemaschinisten- and the Schiffbauschule (ship engineering and shipbuilding) started their teaching activities. Today, the maritime activities of the Hochschule Bremen are broadly diversified in teaching and research.
The aim of "Blue Growth", a long-term political strategy of the EU, "is to support sustainable growth in all marine and maritime sectors of the economy: Seas and oceans are engines for the European economy and have great potential for innovation and growth." [DG Mare]
As a coastal region with a maritime character, the state of Bremen can benefit particularly from the EU's planned promotion of sustainable growth that takes into account local climatic, oceanographic, economic, cultural and social factors.
The Hochschule Bremen offers optimal points of reference for this through its range of teaching and research activities. Particularly in the areas of shipbuilding, nautical science, maritime transport and biology, which are organisationally combined in the Faculty of Nature and Technology, the Hochschule Bremen bundles the requisite key competencies for the implementation of this EU strategy under one roof in a way that is unique in Germany.
