Forming Your Future - Forming Technology Excellence Program

Forming Your Future – Forming Technology Excellence Program

As part of the Forming Technology Excellence Program at the Institute of Production Technology and Forming Machines (PtU), students are offered the opportunity to be long-term part of current research and to be closely involved in the scientific work at the institute. The participants conduct independent research on an innovative topic with special relevance for the forming technology of the future. The program includes first scientific publications as well as assistance in research and industrial projects and in-house classes. The status of “Junior Scientist” is also accompanied by access to the institute's resources, a full-time job and attractive funding.

The aim of the program is to get students interested in forming technology, to develop their technical knowledge and personal skills, and to give them the opportunity to stand out from other graduates. This is intended to ensure optimum preparation for a possible PhD following the program running parallel to the master's degree.
