Aeronautical Engineering

The cooperation with the University of South Alabama is founded on a collaboration between the HAW Hamburg, South Alabama and Airbus. The University of South Alabama is situated in Mobile, Alabama, where Airbus has developed a new production site in the United States.

Master students in aeronautical engineering at the HAW Hamburg can complete their Master's thesis in Mobile in collaboration with the University of South Alabama and Airbus. They must have a professor at the University of South Alabama who is the contact for the thesis and who signs off the application for the J-1 Student Intern visa. Students completing this programme are in South Alabama for their thesis only; they do not take classes in addition to their thesis. The HAW Hamburg coordinator for this programme is Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Huber.

Life in Mobile, Alabama

The city of Mobile is a saltwater port, located at thehead of Mobile Bay and the North-Central Gulf Coast, with a population of 200,000. It is an old city with French, Spanish and Creole culture and heritage, with lots of old antebellum houses and architecture typical for the Southern States. It is home to America's original Mardi Gras and is famous for its carnival celebrations. Outside the city you can paddle in one of the most significant river delta systems in the US or go to the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico (Orange Beach is an hour's drive away), while the Megabus takes you to New Orleans in two hours.
