The introduction of digital products in mechanical engineering has its origin in mechatronics, which is an interdisciplinary fusion of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science. The development of mechatronics is unbroken and highly dynamic, starting from programmable and connected to smart mechatronic systems. System integration and system understanding are keys to technological progress and form the core of our expertise. Openness, responsibility and team spirit are particularly important to us in our actions.
Teaching at IMS includes basic courses in the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree as well as internships, team projects and theses. By means of imparting basic technical knowledge and early practical relevance, our focus is on developing a holistic understanding of the system.
Research at IMS focuses on mechatronic system development and integration. The focus is on vehicle systems, energy systems, robotics systems and actuated systems. A large number of cross-sectional topics, from sector integration to artificial intelligence and human-mechatronic interaction, link these areas both in the virtual and the real world.
