Latest News

Here we will inform you about the latest research topics, upcoming events and other news of the department.



From PhD Candidate to Permanent Staff

Since its establishment, our institute has continually offered scholarships for PhD candidates in cooperation with TU Kaiserslautern and other universities, which can lead to the award of a PhD in just over three years. Because of the close relationships to the supervisors, this program strengthens the research orientation of our department.

In addition, the program provides excellent job opportunities for the doctoral candidates while representing a potential source of outstanding qualified employees for the department. The two new staff members for 2017, Jaroslaw Wlazlo and Tobias Seifarth, successfully completed their doctorates in Kaiserslautern and Kassel.
