Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    Materials Engineering: Surface Engineering, such as PVD, electroplating, thermal injections; Plastics Engineering; Composites (carbon-fibre reinforced plastics, glass-fibre reinforced plastics); Modern Textile Engineering (technical applications, carbon engineering, non-woven fabrics). Mechanical Engineering: Production Engineering (machining) and production organisation; Constructive focus on resource-efficient design (lightweight construction, calculation methods, CAE, simulation engineering); Special focus on environmentally responsible technology, energy and water supply; Appropriate teaching content in soft skills (business administration, project management, communication).
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    The department offers an "International Mechanical Engineering" degree course which includes a compulsory year abroad (one study semester, one practical semester). Agreements are concluded with a number of higher education institutions to support students. Some of the courses before the semester abroad are held in English.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    IIT Guwahati, Guwahati, Indien; Università degli Studi di Brescia, Brescia, Italien; Karelia University of Applied Sciences, Joensuu, Finnland; Kongju National University, Kongju, Südkorea; Universidad Nacional de Ingenieria, Lima, Peru; Ural Federal University, Jekatarinenburg, Russland; Technische Universität Prag, Prag, Tschechien; Hogeschool Zeeland, Vlissingen, Niederlande; German-Jordanian University, Amman, Jordanien; Multimedia University, Cyberjaya, Malaysia
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The faculty has very good facilities: Materials Testing (testing of mechanical properties, microscopy, REM, etc.); Plastics Processing and Generative Production Processes (3D printing); Surface Engineering (PVD, electroplating, paint, modification bonding); Chipping manufacturing engineering available; Energy Engineering Laboratory; Water and Environmental Engineering Laboratory; CAE techniques (CAD/FEM/simulation); A special feature: Teaching and research of innovative textile engineering which covers non-woven materials, fibre composites (lightweight design) and also carbon engineering in the future.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    Ice storage; Energy monitoring, energy saving, thermal insulation; Lightweight construction/textiles; Function-integrated plastic parts; Thin-film engineering; Biopolymers; Foil production
  • Other special features
    Many industrial partners/students cooperate in the framework of the Bavarian training model "Dual University" which combines commercial training (with IHK (Chamber of Commerce) diploma) and academic studies.
