    Experimental setups during the course which are further developed and run by the students in the lab, increasing the practical relevance of the course. Highly modern facilities are available for research and development topics. A high standard of equipment guarantees fulfilment of the high demands on application-oriented research in the key research areas.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Research projects in Innovation Management (e.g. CoPS research group) supported by various sponsors promote inter-disciplinary teaching of a wide range of subjects. Technical research laboratories (e.g. model factory, lean production lab, IOX laboratory, materials) are operated together with industrial partners and cooperation companies. This results in pronounced integration of students, many of whom go on to do a doctorate in the field.
