Transfer and Sustainability
The Faculty of Engineering transfers knowledge from university to application on many levels and ways. Indeed, this close connection between academia and business is one of the traditional strengths of German engineering. One of the most important transfer paths is the joint work in publicly funded projects. Nevertheless, the faculty's wealth of ideas also finds its way into application through spin-off companies.
Sustainability is one of the major drivers of research in the Faculty of Engineering today. This is clearly reflected in the topics of the projects that the individual departments work on. In the faculty research profile "Energy and Resource Engineering", resource sustainability is already to be found in the name, but the other three research profiles also take up this major topic in a variety of ways.
