"The strength of the Department of Engineering lies in the interdisciplinary cooperation of the Institutes of Electronic Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Aviation, and Applied Production Sciences. This enables us to solve complex problems in research while encouraging an active exchange of ideas which in turn provides new input for teaching. This ensures our students are well prepared to meet the professional challenges they will face."

Christian Vogel, Head of Department

The Engineering Department focuses on innovations in mechanical engineering, electronics and process engineering, working in close cooperation with leading companies and institutions. We carry out large-scale international projects to develop new solutions for the e-mobility sector and for all kinds of industrial products: from cars to aircraft and foodstuffs. What motivates us is taking a product idea through to successful implementation in a life cycle approach. We are fully aware of our responsibility towards future generations and are committed to sustainability as a key aspect of our applied research activities.

Graduates from our engineering degree programmes are in international demand and are well-qualified to meet the challenges of technological innovation while using their extensive skills in contributing towards sustainable development.
