Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    The practice-oriented and industry-related teaching of Industrial Engineering is based on an intensive personal contact between the students and the professors. Students are directly involved in the research and industrial projects, which allows them to see the benefit of what they have learnt and apply it in practice. This not only imparts methodological knowledge and specialist knowledge, but students also acquire social and personnel skills through this team-oriented and interdisciplinary way of working and learning.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The department has partnerships with 22 universities in all parts of the world. Students can benefit early on from the advice of an internationally experienced professor regarding timetable, possible contents and funding opportunities of a period abroad. In addition to a pure study period and practicals, the international partnerships and research projects of the department also offer opportunities for short stays a broad to write final dissertations or earn academic credits.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    Karel de Grote Hogeschool, Katholieke Hogeschool Antwerpen, Belgien; Turku Institute of Technology, Finnland; Université de Luxembourg, Luxemburg; Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Spanien; Clemson University, USA; Politechnika Opolska, Polen; Shenkar College of Engineering & Design, Israel; Università degli Studi di Salerno, Italien; University of Malta, Malta; Shanghai Second Polytechnic University, China.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    In addition to the specialist laboratories for Materials Science, Control Engineering, Hydraulics, Optical Measurement Technology offers numerous research laboratories such as for Production Technology, Measurement Technology and the screw connection laboratory a broad basis for individual focus. In the specialisations General Mechanical Engineering and Vehicle Technology, components are developed in "CAD" and finally manufactured in the "Computer Aided Manufacturing" laboratory with CNC 5-axis milling and 3-D printing. A crash system with crash dummies, a wind tunnel and a modern test center for engines and drives are available for vehicle technicians.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Focus of current research projects: Development of intelligent composite materials, medical technology products, disruptive new measurement technology for production and sensor development. Field of Vehicle Technology: Crash safety of vehicle structures and seats, 3-D printing, environmentally friendly drives, electromobility (project proTRon), app-supported telematics systems (as part of the Toyota Institute). Other interdisciplinary projects in Biomechanics and accident research (as part of the Nürburgring Academy) and in areas of autonomous driving and virtual acoustics (driving simulator).
  • Support for founders
    The "Gründungsbüro" start-up service offers regular introductory courses on self-employment as well as further training courses, thus also providing students from other disciplines with the necessary knowledge to successfully start their own business. This has already enabled several successful student start-ups.
