As a qualified specialist in Industrial Technologies, you learn to develop, manufacture, use and optimise technical products. These might include machines, vehicles, appliances, tools or systems. This area of specialisation hinges on electrical and electronic, and mechanical and mechatronic systems. You also use your mathematical skills for calculation, simulation, analysis and verification.

Modern industrial technologies enable us to create products for consumer and industrial use, employing cutting-edge processes and manufacturing techniques. A range of different disciplines converge as we develop new products and production technologies. These might include additive manufacturing processes, new methods for developing materials, and intelligent automation with incorporated communications systems or simulation capabilities. You will gain hands-on experience in topics such as Industry 4.0, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and process optimisation.
We participate in engaging, practical projects and invite you to join our vibrant research community. Students join a research group and gain experience employing the latest innovations in the field. You may choose between the following areas of specialisation:
- Applying laser technology: cutting and structuring surfaces, ensuring quality in measurement engineering, using fibre lasers in processing machinery.
- Modifying materials: tempering materials or employing thin-film technologies (chemical and structural), executing plasma-supported processes.
- Systems and processes in mechanical, manufacturing and printing engineering: mechatronic systems including automation by means of steering and bus systems, developing mobile embedded systems.
- Product and financial risk management: assessing technical feasibility of products and processes, mastering the technical, socio-ecological (humans and the environment) and economic risks of manufacturing and application.

Electronic devices have become a ubiquitous part of everyday life. Modern technologies and their applications should make life easier for the people using them. With this objective in mind, we pursue research in biomedical engineering and human interface technologies.
Our Human Interface Technologies specialisation covers cutting-edge technologies, such as computer perception and virtual reality, signal processing, sensor technology, biometrics and authentication processes as well as hardware algorithmics in microelectronics. Our Rehabilitation and Performance Technology specialisation explores methods to improve the rehabilitation process for individuals following an accident or illness.
Research results gathered by our computer perception and virtual reality teams have already been successfully integrated into applications in medicine, biometrics and consumer goods. In biometrics, we are currently developing authentication algorithms based on fingerprints and iris patterns employing ‘encapsulated biometry’. There is growing demand for boosted processing power and energy efficiency in hand-held devices. Our response: developing both hardware and software algorithms as microelectronic system-on-chip solutions.
