Projects in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Material Sciences
Managing resources as considerately as possible is a decisive factor not only regarding ecological issues but also economic ones. Looking at the energy transition and the rising cost of mineral resources, our standard of living can only be maintained if both materials and energy are deployed most efficiently. This is why we at THGA research the development of materials and their efficient use in production as well as recycling processes. In addition, we investigate upcycling and the conversation of objects; optimising production methods and processes, and introducing substantial improvements in automation. All of these topics are explored by our students of Mechanical Engineering (Bachelor and Master), Applied Material Sciences and Material Engineering and Industrial Heritage Conservation.
