Faculty 2: Mechanical Engineering and Material Sciences

From designing machines and equipment to developing mechatronic systems to utilizing renewable energy, the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Matrial Sciences explores a wide range of subjects. Interdisciplinary projects at the Faculty look at issues such as programmable logic controllers for simulating materials handling processes in factories. Or analyzing chassis and quality management programs for the automotive industry.

TH Georg Agricola tackles issues relating to climate change in its energy development program. From biofuels to wind turbines and solar energy – it fosters a sustainable energy mix and clean supplies of energy with processes for renewable power production.

The applied material sciences research the properties, safety characteristics and quality of materials, and develop products using renewable materials. In their research, they look at both the financial issues and the technical aspects.
