Our Mission

  1. An excellent environment, laboratory facilities, cooperation on an equal basis across all levels, outstanding projects, research and teaching make us the first choice.
  2. A participative manner, involvement in various tasks in both teaching and practice create a special bond to the chair during and beyond the occupation.
  3. Through intensive networking with competent partners and institutes both home and abroad we profile ourselves as a competence center and coordinator of complex projects.
  4. We promote the talents of our employees as future leaders in science and industry.
  5. With an entrepreneurial pioneering spirit, the joy of experimenting, trying out new things, and innovative approaches, we appeal project partners as well as employees.
  6. We see ourselves as an innovation machine and take new, unorthodox paths in research and teaching. Setbacks are considered as an incentive for improvement.
  7. We set standards in academic teaching, embed research findings promptly and shape the curriculum of product creation.
  8. Through a wide range of professional competencies and content depth, we shape the engineering profile of our graduates.

Future-robust engineering of cyber-physical systems - new VDI/VDE guideline 2206 means a milestone for the development of technical systems

When it comes to methodical support for the development of mechatronic systems, there is no way around VDI Guideline 2206. The increasingly rapid progress of digitalisation had made a further development of this guideline imperative. The responsible VDI Technical Committee, chaired by Prof. Iris Gräßler and consisting of equal numbers of nationwide academic members and industry representatives from a wide range of sectors, has now presented a result that represents a milestone in engineering technical systems: Instead of focusing exclusively on mechatronic systems, the guideline 2206 now includes cyber-physical systems in its consideration. The revised guideline has been available in white print since November 2021.
