Special features regarding teachingThe University of Bremen has long pursued the concept of learning through research. The courses in the Production Technology department contain mandatory projects that are also offered across courses. Students are specifically prepared for jobs in engineering. The variety of projects reflects the diversity of research and professional activities of industrial engineers. The study entry phase is supported by open learning groups, which are closely accompanied and guided by tutors.
Special features regarding the international orientationA high proportion of international professors and guest lecturers in both departments involved and the large number of large research institutes (including Fraunhofer, Leibniz, DLR) support the international orientation of the course. Individual design options for stays abroad (studies, internships) based on existing cooperations are available.
Exchange universities for stay abroadsUPC Barcelona, Spanien; UPV Valencia, Spanien; Freie Universität Bozen, Italien; Universitá degli Studi di Salerno, Italien; Technical University of Denmark, Dänemark; Tallinna Tehnikaülikool, Estland; Riga Technical University, Lettland; Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, Niederlande; Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal; Universidade Lusófonoa de Lisboa, Portugal.
Special features regarding the equipmentThe Department of Production Technology, with its specialist areas and associated institutes, covers a very broad and varied spectrum from basic research to applied research. There are sometimes unique technical facilities available for this. Examples are ZARM's world-renowned drop tower, where experiments are carried out in weightlessness, and the MAPEX Equipment Center, where innovative materials are developed and characterised, e.g. for biomedical applications or for use in the aerospace industry.
Special features regarding research activitiesThe members of the Production Engineering department coordinate a large number of national and international collaborative research projects, in particular the Collaborative Research Centres 1232 "From coloured states to evolutionary construction materials", the SFB/Transregio 136 "Function-oriented manufacturing on the basis of characteristic process signatures", as well as the Research Training Groups 1620 "Models of gravity" and 1860 "Micro-, meso-, and macro-porous non-metallic materials: basics and application (MIMENIMA)".
Support for foundersThe University of Bremen is a founding member and thus an active part of the BRIDGE university initiative since September 2002. BRIDGE comprises initial advice on self-employment and, above all, a start-up-relevant course programme. Interested parties are offered over 20 sessions each semester to develop and/or improve their start-up skills.
Other special featuresOur close co-operation with engineering research institutions located on the central campus sets us apart. In addition to the university institutes that belong directly to the department, these are also institutes run under the auspices of organisations such as Fraunhofer or the DLR. The connection to the departments is organisationally so anchored that the management of these institutes is often linked to the management of an area in the department ("chair"). For the students, this provides a wealth of employment and doctoral research opportunities.
