At this point, we report on current topics, dates and other news directly from the department.

Workshops and Seminars

Practical applied research and method development require constant communication with the world of industrial application. This means know-how transfer from the institute to industry as well as feedback from users and calibration of new methods according to their practical relevance.

Of course, this is done in our cooperation projects. But we decided to establish an additional broad and open instrument: Advanced technology courses for engineers in the industry.

We offer the following seminars in German at regular intervals:

  • Load data – analysis, design and simulation (next date: 07. - 09.05.2019, more information)
  • Statistical methods in fatigue strength (next date: 25. - 27.06.2019, more information)

Press Release / Research News

Simple, rapid determination of cable properties

Trying to fit all the necessary cables into a car is anything but an easy task. Simulations can be helpful, but the properties of each cable need to be precisely defined up front. We developed a highly automated measurement system (MeSOMICS) for identification of model parameters for IPS Cable Simulation.

Job Offers

Student Assistants

We are always looking for scientific assistants as support in projects from the industry and research.

Master Thesis

Do you have an own idea for a thesis? Also, this is a welcomed alternative. In this case, please submit your proposed topic within an unsolicited application, so that we can assess whether the proposed topic suits in our core competences.
