The Engineering Education Research Group at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH) seeks to scientifically describe teaching and learning processes in engineering. A special focus is on analyzing student understanding of key concepts and their relationships in basic engineering courses. In our research, we use qualitative as well as quantitative empirical methods, e.g. semi-structured interviews and diagnostic tests.
Through our close collaboration with the Zentrum für Lehre und Lernen (Center for Teaching and Learning), the results of this research can be immediately applied in the teaching at TUHH.
