HAWK University of Applied Sciences and Arts

Göttingen, Germany
We place particular importance on an international approach and attitude. But we feel it is just as important that the students at our three campuses in Hildesheim, Holzminden and Göttingen are closely linked to local networks and that co-operative projects establish early contacts to prospective employers.



HAWK University of Applied Sciences and Arts or HAWK - Hochschule für angewandte Wissenschaft und Kunst was found in 1971 in Germany.


We offer 23 Bachelor and 13 Master courses in six faculties and are currently significantly expanding our interdisciplinary approach.


The primary mission of the Hornemann Institute is to promote research and training in the field of preservation of cultural heritage, especially through world-wide knowledge transfer for conservators via Internet.
