Institute for Technology and Knowledge Transfer


Our university stands for applied research and development at the highest level. We set new standards for industry, offering our partners customised solutions for their often complex professional requirements. We support companies in the development and optimization of innovative ideas – through consultancy, scientific analysis and research in our state-of-the-art laboratories.

Our centres of excellence in Mechatronic, Environmental Technology and Construction Engineering have been widely recognised for their contribution to professional practice in their respective fields. Other main focus areas are Interactive Media and Fiber Composites. As a central contact point the Institute for Technology and Knowledge Transfer serves, co-ordinating multidisciplinary and cross-faculty research programmes.

Every semester professors and students take part in practice-based research and development projects with commercial partners. 90 percent of our bachelor and master theses are earned in companies. Practical orientation pays off: Our students are awarded many prizes for their work.
