Innovative solutions are the key to the sustainable, digital and intelligent production and forming technology of tomorrow.

As part of the Excellence Program at the Institute of Production Engineering and Forming Machines (PtU), 4 students currently have the opportunity to create these future trends in close cooperation between research and industry.

The participants of the Excellence Program are strongly integrated into research topics, industrial projects and the PtU community, but are also are prepared for a later career as a research assistant. During the program, which lasts four semesters, they pass through various departments of the institute, get integrated into the working environment and contribute to future topics in the areas of sustainability, e-mobility, artificial intelligence as well as innovative materials and processes at PtU.

During the entire time, the participants have a personal mentor as a professional support person. In addition to building up a network in industry and science and flexible working hours, there is the possibility of directly starting a doctorate at PtU after the master's thesis, which is integrated into the program.

In the coming weeks, the participants will introduce themselves and their future topics. The focus will be on the goals, challenges and opportunities of the Excellence Program.
