Hallo everybody, my name is TT. A short while ago I completed my bachelor degree in chemical engineering in my 8th semester. Now I am part of the head of the AStA till I am going to continue my master studies. Furthermore I am part of the committee for strategy making for studies and teaching and of the committee for gender equality at the TUHH. In case you have any questions according to that, general questions about the AStA or you want to participate in the student’s self-administration, don’t hesitate to contact me.
