Key Research Priorities

The Department of Mechanical Engineering participates in the following key research priorities of the Faculty of Engineering:

  • New Materials and Processes (e.g. lightweight construction, structural plastics, tribological coatings)
  • Information and Communication Technology (e.g. knowledge management, artificial intelligence for product development and production technology)
  • Mechatronics and Production Engineering (e.g. additive manufacturing, electronics production)
  • Optical Technologies (e.g. Laster technology, measuring technology)
  • Medical Engineering (e.g. biomechanics)
  • Interdisciplinary topic: Modelling/Simulation/Optimization (e.g. sustainable product and process development, finite element simulation, dynamic simulation)
