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.
