HCAT - THE platform for skills transfer

The Hamburg Centre of Aviation Training (HCAT) is THE platform for skills transfer in Hamburg Aviation.

The city, the industry, universities, training institutions and trade associations bundle their strengths in this joint project to ensure optimal qualification programmes.

The laboratories and workshops in the HCAT building are jointly used by HAW Hamburg, the G15 Vocational School, Airbus and Lufthansa Technical Training. The immediate interaction between teaching, research and practice mean that qualification programmes are attuned to current and future needs of the industry. 

The focus of academic teaching is in the field of cabins and cabin systems. Vocational and in-service training focus on the areas of avionics/electronics, modern manufacturing processes and new materials.
