Science Talks

With the Science Talks, we want to initiate thematic impulses, create space for a stronger, interdisciplinary exchange and, in particular, enable closer networking between the professors of the Faculty of Engineering. The Science Talks take place every six months and combine scientific lectures with exciting locations or activities.

FIW network for young researchers

By networking the young scientists of the Faculty of Engineering, postdocs and advanced doctoral students are given the opportunity to exchange experiences, get to know peers and learn more about the research of the other departments in the faculty.

Hydrogen in context

The energy transition is one of the central challenges of the coming years. Hydrogen as an energy carrier offers an enormous opportunity for the German energy industry. "Hydrogen in Context" is an initiative of the Faculty of Engineering of the UDE, the TIW and other institutions and bundles all information on the topic of "hydrogen" - from current research, cooperations and news to planned events.

Workshops & Seminars

21.04.2023Compact workshop "Design Thinking"

The first part of the compact workshop provides an overview of the origins of design thinking and its special features. Participants learn why quantity is sometimes more important than quality and why it is so important to build on the wild ideas of others.

In the second part, participants experience design thinking in a concrete mini-challenge and then reflect on how they can integrate individual elements into their everyday research.                   

Numerous practical examples from university practice and inspirations round off this workshop.

21.11.2022Transferworkshop „Perfect Pitch“

As part of the seminar series on the professionalisation of our faculty's researchers, the workshop on "Pitch your Research - Communicating Research Results in a Convincing and Target-Group-Specific Way" took place on Monday, 21.11.2022, 4-8 pm.

26.9.2022Workshop „Werkstatt – Handwerk trifft Wissenschaft“

Are you a craftsman in the finishing trades (electrical, drywall, sanitary, roller shutters, air conditioning, ...) and want to digitalise your business and make it future-proof?
Are you a scientist from the engineering sciences or computer science - e.g. research assistant, student, professor, graduate - and are interested in advancing the skilled trades with exciting ideas?

Join the workshop "Craft meets Science". The workshop "Craft meets Science" promotes the exchange and networking of craftspeople and scientists. In small teams, we develop the digital craft innovations of tomorrow. The meetings of the teams are spread over a month. The end result is solutions and prototypes that solve key challenges in the craft sector.

Dates & schedule of the workshop

1st meeting: Topic and team identification - Monday 26.09.2022, 15:30-19:30 hrs.

Workshop phase: Development of solutions and prototypes - 27.09.2022 - 23.10.2022

Teams will meet independently for a total of 10-15 hours during this period to work on their digital projects. The aim is to present the first concrete results and prototypes (incl. programming, design, manufacturing, etc.) by the 2nd meeting on 24.10.

2nd meeting: Presentation of results - Monday 24.10.2022, 15:30-19:30 hrs.

11.7.2022Seminar "Drittmittel erfolgreich einwerben und verwalten"

For some years now, third-party funding has become increasingly relevant and is a fixed source of income at many universities and non-university research institutions. Often, the acquisition of third-party funding is even absolutely necessary in order to be able to conduct research at the highest level and thus strengthen one's own reputation. There are often a number of hurdles and stumbling blocks in the acquisition of third-party funding and its administration.

This was the topic of the seminar "Successfully acquiring and managing third-party funding - making the most of project opportunities", which was organised by the Research Coordination Office for all scientists at the Faculty of Engineering on 11 July 2022.

The aim of the full-day seminar was to show the possibilities of third-party funding and to impart knowledge about different project sponsors as well as the third-party funding provider economy. In addition, the seminar addressed common mistakes in the application process and included the creation of a guide to optimise the chances of obtaining third-party funding. The event also showed ways to manage the funds after successful acquisition of third-party funding. In addition to the preparation of a financing plan, the programme and project lump sums as well as the call for funds and proof of use were discussed. The lecturer Magnus Gees also went into quantitative and qualitative key figure management, digitalisation and IT-based administration tools.

In order to ensure the highest possible degree of professionalisation, the seminar took place in cooperation with the Centre for Science Management Speyer (ZWM) and was aimed at faculty researchers with management tasks (postdocs and professors) who wanted to familiarise themselves with the topic of third-party funding and receive practical support. The participants rated the seminar with a grade of 1.9.
