At present approximately 1.060 students are working for about 1.000 companies - including Airbus and members of the CFK Valley network. The engineering course Mechatronics DUAL B. Eng. (7 semesters) produces generalists who are able to work across the sectors at the interface of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer sciences. Each of the stated engineering disciplines is represented by experienced professors. Furthermore, interfaces to CFK (carbon fiber reinforced plastic) can be found in the construction industry, which is depicted through the study course civil engineering DUAL and construction in existing contexts DUAL at the location.
Along with the IT laboratory, an electrical engineering laboratory and a production and manufacturing laboratory, it is the robotics laboratory in particular that is of interest for companies in the CFK Valley. The focus topic of the current research and development work on the CFK material in the context of aircraft construction is the reliable and quick and consequently favorably priced production of three-dimensional components. The automation of this manufacturing hereby plays a central role. Great freedom to move in three spatial directions is required, which is only possible through large-scale robotic technology. Such automation and robotic technology is one of the focal points in the course of studies Mechatronics DUAL.
