Mechanics of Solids, Surfaces and Systems

This specialization belongs to the master's programme Mechanical Engineering.

Creating new and better materials and products as well as the machinery required to make these products is the focus of the MS3 specialization.

Manufacturing new products and/or developing new processes requires a profound scientific understanding of the materials and their interactions throughout the complete life cycle: during production, while in use and following their service life. The background of our research activities is formed by the mechanics of materials and systems for small and large deformations in quasi-static and dynamic conditions. The products and the manufacturing systems are typically on the microscopic to macroscopic scale, and our research also encompasses the submicron range. As an MS3 student, you will be trained to solve the industrial problems of today and tomorrow.
