For years, the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) has been maintaining collaborations and scientific exchanges with universities in Jordan. A close co-operation exists between the TUHH Institute for Environmental Technology and Energy (IUE) and the School of Natural Resources Engineering & Management of the German-Jordanian University and the Faculty of Engineering & Management from the University of Jourdan.
Co-operation Now Expanded to Master Degree Students
The co-operation projects are all being set up under the umbrella of the EU education programme Erasmus +. Simultaneously, Jordanian doctoral candidates work at TUHH on their thesis. Now, this co-operation has been expanded to Master degree courses, with first students travelling to the Middle East in November
Renewable Energies in Focus
The co-operation is backed by the DAAD programme “German-Arab Transformation Partnership: University Partnerships 2015” and the “Master Renewable Energies” project initiated by Professor Martin Kaltschmitt. The expansion of the co-operation aims at allowing TUHH students of the Master’s programme “Renewable Energies” and students of the respective programms of the two partner universities in Jordan to study in the other country without losing one semester; and/or to work on their Master’s thesis at the partner university. It is thus planned to extend the curriculum for the Master’s Degree “Renewable Energies” at TUHH and the University of Jordan.
Networking with Jordan, Syria and Libya
Professor Martin Kaltschmitt has been committed for years to expanding co-operations with selected universities in Jordan, Syria and Libya. His team and he is involved in the design of the master’s degree programme “Environmental Engineering and Climate Change” at three Jordanian universities as well as the master’s degree program “Energy Management” on three Libyan universities.
