Our research groups

Our strength lies in our interdisciplinarity. In four research groups we investigate technologies and management for modern production. We research solutions at the hardware and software level that will make industrial processes more efficient, digital and sustainable. The cross-group collaboration of our research groups is the key to synergies and innovations.

Practice-relevant research is part of our DNA

In addition to current research projects with numerous industry partners, we also have two learning factories of our own: The ETA factory (Energy Efficiency, Technology and Application Center) and the process learning factory CiP(Center for Industrial Productivity). These lighthouse projects served as the nucleus for many large-scale projects. With the TEC-Lab, we also have access to our own production hall with modern machinery and equipment for additive manufacturing.
