The introduction of digital products in mechanical engineering has its origins in mechatronics. Their development, from programmable to networked to intelligent mechatronic systems, is unbroken and highly dynamic. System integration and system understanding are the keys to technological progress and form the core of our expertise. Openness, responsibility and team spirit are particularly important to us in all our actions.
The teaching at the 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 the IMS focuses on mechatronic system development and integration. The focus is on the areas of vehicle, energy, robotics and vibration systems. A large number of cross-sectional topics, from sector integration to artificial intelligence and human-mechatronic interaction, network these areas both virtually and real.
