The students receive their first impression of the extensive field of production engineering in the basic course Technology of Manufacturing Processes. The understanding of production processes is expanded on the basis of practice-oriented manufacturing examples, demonstrators, and case studies, which additionally provide the opportunity to solve industrial tasks.
The lecture Laser in Manufacturing introduces students to the basics and fields of applications of lasers used for industrial material processing.
In the successive semesters, the basic knowledge gained in the bachelor's program can be extended in the selective courses Forming Technologies I + II and Forming Machines I + II. The focus in these lectures is set on the basics of plastomechanics and tribology, forming technologies and the necessary machines, manufacturing and handling facilities.
The range of lectures is complemented by the courses Process Chains in the Automotive Industry I + II and Machine Design I + II. Both courses are held by industrial guest lecturers who are able to provide a deeper insight into the industrial practice as well as into the production-oriented design.
